Imaginative and intelligent, Maggie Tulliver is a young woman decades ahead of her time. Her ambitions and urgings move her out of society's mainstream and into dangerous waters. While her adored brother grows up to meet social expectations, Maggie flaunts her free spirit and independence. It's not hard to imagine how the author, George Eliot (Marian Evans), related to the plight of her headstrong heroine. With just the right dash of apprehension, narrator Cheryl Campbell captures the spirit of a girl torn between duty and love. The tragic ending is heartbreaking.
