Part Two Of Two Parts

The 1700s were unique and colorful, even to those living during that century -- more violent, energetic and creative than earlier centuries.

It was an era that fit Tom Jones, one of nature's heroes, to a tee. He had great appeal, mixing kindness, warmth and generosity with high spirits and impulsiveness, the results of which led him into social predicaments and moral dilemmas. Tom's adventures, first in one part of England, then in another, give us a vivid picture of that country in the mid-18th century, and also entertains us along the way.

"Puts us in close companionship with of the most generous and vigorous spirits in English literature, as well as one of the wisest and wittiest." (Elizabeth Drew, author of The Novel)
