One of the lesser known, but extremely talented English writers. Hardy's books are moody in their setting, and have unique, lonely characters.

A true classic

When we read this book with my book group, we christened it "Return of the Naive". The spoiled characters, petty motivations, and hard-to-believe disasters in this book are much too unappealing. The heath is the best character in the book, and Thomas Hardy describes it with the care of a lover. He clearly has writing talent, but it was wasted here.

" Well-constructed Hardy novel of a remote corner of Wessex and six characters who interact in a beautifully rendered location. Man, nature, civilization, country life, love, education and ignorance--the usual mix of Hardy's take on the consequences of unrealistic expectations and inappropriate responses."
