Summary

Bathsheba Everdene is young, proud, and beautiful. She is an independent woman and can marry any man she chooses - if she chooses. In fact, she likes her independence, and she likes fighting her own battles in a man’s world. But it is never wise to ignore the power of love. There are three men who would very much like to marry Bathsheba. When she falls in love with one of them, she soon wishes she had kept her independence. She learns that love brings misery, pain, and violent passions that can destroy lives .An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Thomas Hardy original by Clare West.

Read as a truly engaging drama

This is a really lovely audiobook very well read by the narrator, who does wonderful character voices and has a naturally engaging narrator tone.

Tame

Why are some of us (women) afraid of being tamed? In my opinion it is the job of a man to tame us, ale care of us and love us dearly. Great book, at the end she realizes that Gabriel all along was taking care of her in one way or another and their band became Unbreakable.
