"Daniel Deronda is a startling and unexpected novel it is a cosmic myth, a world
history, and a morality play."--A. S. Byatt

"Nadia May meets the strenuous demands of Eliot's narration with easy assurance."--Library Journal

One of the masterpieces of English fiction, Daniel Deronda tells the intertwined stories of two different
characters as they each come to discover of the truth of their natures. Gwendolen Harleth is the high-spirited
beauty of an impoverished upper-class family. In order to restore their fortunes, she unwittingly traps herself
in an oppressive marriage. Humbled, she turns for solace and guidance to the high-minded Daniel Deronda, an
adopted son of an aristocratic Englishman who is searching for his path in life. But when Deronda rescues a poor
Jewish girl from drowning, he discovers a world of Jewish experience previously unknown to himor to the
Victorian novel. Dismayed by the anti-Semitism around him, the tragedy of the lovely Gwendolen begins
to fade for Deronda. When he finally uncovers the long-hidden secret of his own parentage, he must confront his
true identity and destiny.
