About the Author
English novelist and poet Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) was a Victorian written in the tradition of George Eliot. He was critical of Victorian society but many of his novels focus on rural society. Hardy regarded himself as a poet and his first collection was published in 1898. Prior to that he published many successful novels including Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), and Jude the Obscure (1895).

His books often contain tragic characters struggling in social circumstances, and many are set in the region of Wessex in southwest and south central England, which eventually included the counties of Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon, Hampshire and much of Berkshire, in southwest and south central England.

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.
