Red Pottage


Read by Simon Evers

(4.6 stars; 38 reviews)

The book follows a period in the lives of two friends, Rachel West and Hester Gresley. Rachel is a wealthy heiress who falls in love with the weak-willed Hugh Scarlett after he has broken off an affair with Lady Newhaven (which he does not originally realize has been discovered by her husband). Hester, a novelist, lives with her brother, the pompous vicar of the fictional village of Warpington. The book caused a scandal when it was first published due to its themes of adultery, the emancipation of women and its satire of the clergy. (Wikipedia) (12 hr 11 min)

Reviews

(5 stars)

one of the "best books you've never read" by a writer whi deserves to be better known. it is a keen study of character and moral failure in many dimensions, as well as a study of Victorian English society as the tsunami of the 20th century is about to hit it. all written with wit and beauty. a remarkable novel.

thank you, Mr Evers!

(5 stars)

I have only just discovered this author, and adore her....and this narrator. I actually search for his recordings abd listen to novels he chose. He is perfect, abd I greatly appreciate all his hours upon hours of reading these classics. Thank you again, and again! :)

very interesting story

(5 stars)

Excellent, excellent reading. Very good, interesting story but narcissists always think of themselves and are cowards. I don't think that Hugh was worth the time or the rehabilitation of the author.

Good Story

(5 stars)

Simon Evers is always amazing! Thank you LibriVox for having such talented narrators. This is an intense tale that will draw you in. Love, betrayal and honor at its harshest.
