I read this book as a teenager and have remembered the story ever since. I think it is the only book to ever have had the film follow the story line so perfectly. I have a connection to Dorset as my father's family all lived there but even without that, this is a classic for everyone. It is the story of female power in a man's world, a woman who succeeds. Once started it is hard to put down until the end and I found that I wanted part two and more.No-one writes like Thomas Hardy!
