An interesting story centres on the classic relationship between a woman, her missing husband and the enigmatic younger man to whom she is drawn. As the female struggles to resolve her conflicting passion and sense of duty, the novel is as much a statement about the moral attitudes of the time as a story, Hardy delivers in his usual style.

The book is unreadable as it is badly misprinted, paragraphs in the middle of sentences, misspellings, chapters in the middle of pages, hyphens and commas etc. in the middle of words. Book is paperback in almost A4 format and difficult to hold.

This story was considered scandalous when first published but in this age we are used to all kinds of different partners and relationships. So well told by Hardy and another good read.

As a Thomas Hard fan I enjoyed this book. His writings are not for everyone but if you are a Thomas Hardy fan then this will not disappoint.

Haven't read this since school in 1950s. It still resonates.

This is one of Hardy's lesser known works but I found it a very enjoyable read.Lots of unexpected things keep happening which keeps you reading on. This book should be better known.

Another great read by Hardy. Romantic in places and unbearably sad in others. A must read for all Hardy fans.
