Welcome Frostkit and you need to slow down. Ok. Make the story last longer and add some cliffhangers. Ok do you understand? A good story is never ruched. (Again sorry for my spelling. But you under stand what I am saying though any way right?)

Liked it, but didn't love it. I wouldn't read it again. It's not as meaningful and the characters as developed as an Austen novel. Still, it's good easy reading. Can easily finish the book in a day.

a charming love story, set against some intriguing analysis of the tensions of village and parish life in 19th century England. Yes, Hardy can smile at times.
