Publisher's Summary

In a remote corner of early Victorian England, where traditional practices remain untouched by time, Bathsheba Everdene stands out as a beacon of female independence and self-reliance. However, when confronted with three suitors, among them the dashing Sergeant Troy, she shows a reckless capriciousness that threatens the stability of the whole community. Published in 1874, and an immediate best seller, Far From the Madding Crowd established Thomas Hardy as one of Britain's foremost novelists.

Wonderful

I loved it. I was struggling to read the book but this narrator has made into a play. I can't praise him enough for bringing it alive for me. All the different characters and their voices. Really enjoyed it.
