As in all of George Eliot's best work, every class of society is included in this portrait of political ferment and corrupt electioneering in a small Midland borough in 1832. At the heart of the novel is George Eliot's conviction that "men's lives are as thoroughly blended with each other as the air they breathe; evil spreads as necessarily as disease."

Just as the 1832 Reform Act is about to change the bucolic and conservatively ordered way of life forever in Treby Magna, two native sons return home. Harold Transome, heir to Transome Court, comes to claim his inheritance and campaign for a Radical seat in Parliament. Felix Holt, and artisan and very different radical, returns to stir the new electorate to a sense of worth and destiny.
