Publisher's Summary

First published in 1749, this is considered one of the first and most influential of British novels. It follows the life and times of Tom Jones, who is discovered as an abandoned baby in the home of prosperous widower Mr Allworthy. He lives with his ill-tempered unmarried sister, Bridget; they are later joined by the obnoxious Captain Blifil, who marries Bridget, and then by their son, Master Blifil.

As childhood and school days segue into adulthood, Tom's affections for a playmate, Sophia, mature, and she seems to reciprocate. But life is never simple. It appears she is intended for the scheming Master Blifil, and complications arise when Tom is duped. In disgrace, he leaves home at age 19 for Bristol and the sea. Sophia too runs away, and the course is set for numerous adventures and misadventures.
