Overview

The rambler who, for old association or other reasons, should trace the forsaken coach–road running almost in a meridional line from Bristol to the south shore of England, would find himself during the latter half of his journey in the vicinity of some extensive woodlands, interspersed with apple–orchards. Here the trees, timber or fruit–bearing, as the case may be, make the wayside hedges ragged by their drip and shade, stretching over the road with easeful horizontality, as if they found the unsubstantial

I can't believe no-one reviewed this book yet, I'd recommend it to all fellow romantics but as with all hardy novels don't expect a happy ending. I couldn't sleep after reading it, the beauty of description of the English landscape, the doomed love between Grace and Giles, the frustration you feel towards propriety and the social conventions at that time, how happiness for everyone seems just in reach and then is cruelly snatched away. If you don't fall in love with at least one character in this book then you must have a heart of stone!

I picked the copy in our city book-fair for no specific reason , and once I started reading I had ..a tryst with myself, my whole existence shaken. I have never before experienced such a journey into alleys of love and passion , crossing the lanes of circumstances and crashing downat last, leaving you love-struck, whatever that may mean.

This ebook is so poorly formatted it is nearly illegible. I'm not sure I'll be able to finish it and that's a shame because it seems like an interesting story.
