THE VIRGIN AND THE GYPSY

D.H. Lawrence
Read by Georgina Sutton

Georgina Sutton delivers the story of the virgin daughter of a vicar and her fascinating romantic entanglement with a gypsy in East Midlands, England. Set after WWI, the story recounts the events of daily life in the rectory, where all action is stifled by the mores of the day. Sutton flawlessly describes how Yvette, traveling throughout the countryside, comes across a gypsy camp, full of colorful, warm free spirits. One of them in particular catches her eye. Sutton’s subtle reading of Lawrence’s character studies—especially her portrait of Yvette’s longing for love—draws the listener into this story of self-discovery.
