TOM JONES by Mark Brown
Tom Jones, a charming young man of questionable birth, is madly in love with Sophia Western, who is equally in love with Tom. But when Sophia’s father arranges for her to marry a loathsome man, she flees for her life. When Tom is subsequently banished from his home, he goes in search of Sophia. Aristocrats, wenches and scalawags abound in this bawdy and rollicking romp through the back roads and bedchambers of England.
