Summary :

As Maggie Tulliver approaches adulthood, her spirited temperament brings her into conflict with her family, her community, and her much-loved brother Tom. Still more painfully, she finds her own nature divided between the claims of moral responsibility and her passionate hunger for self-fulfillment.

First published in 1860, this is a vivid portrayal of childhood and adolescence in rural England. One of George Eliot's best-loved works, this novel is a perceptive study of provincial life, a brilliant evocation of the complexities of human relationships, and a compelling portrait of a young woman whose rebellious spirit closely resembles Eliot's own.
