A Clergyman's Daughter

Written By: George Orwell

Narrated By: Sophie Ward

George Orwell, author of the dystopian classics 1984 and Animal Farm, turns his attention to 1930s England and the life of the much put-upon daughter of a country rector, whose world is turned upside down when she finds herself on the streets of London, destitute, with no memory of who she is or where she has come from. As her memory returns, Dorothy’s faith is challenged by all that she has experienced in this new life, and she is forced to confront and re-evaluate her beliefs.

Orwell’s most structurally experimental novel, A Clergyman's Daugther provides a piercing insight into what happens to faith when it is confronted with the stark reality of poverty, struggle, and the social divide.
