Tess of the d'Urbervilles is the 19th century novel lately thought to be one of the inspirations of E .L.James' Fifty Shades of Grey. It depicts the life of an impressionable, naive, somewhat educated young woman who yearns to be free to live her own life, but finds herself constricted by the bonds of the sexual, religious and socially hypocritical customs that have surrounded her from birth.

Wonderful story, well read. Audible should be ashamed that seconds after the end is a reminder that you have just listened to Tess of the D'Urbevilles by Thomas Hardy then an advert for Audible.
