Independent and spirited Bathsheba Everdene has come to Weatherbury to take up her position as a farmer on the largest estate in the area. Her bold presence draws three very different suitors: the gentleman-farmer Boldwood, soldier-seducer Sergeant Troy and the devoted shepherd Gabriel Oak. Each, in contrasting ways, unsettles her decisions and complicates her life, and tragedy ensues, threatening the stability of the whole community. The first of his works set in Wessex, Hardy's novel of swift passion and slow courtship is imbued with his evocative descriptions of rural life and landscapes, and with unflinching honesty about sexual relationships.


Random's Modern Library is reproducing this Hardy standard as a tie-in to a Masterpiece Theater presentation and offering a quality hardcover for a reasonable price.

Published in 1874 by Thomas Hardy, follows the life of Bathsheba Everdene, our heroine living in the little village of Weatherbury. She is wooed by three men - the noble Gabriel Oak, the soldier Francis Troy, and the handsome Farmer Boldwood.

A romance filled with drama, good and evil, an indfependent heroine, and a shocking ending. Hardy's work is still considered a classic today.
