Book Description
Capricious and handsome Bathsheba Everdene, the new young mistress of the Upper Farm, is a disquieting presence in the village of Weatherbury. Through her relationships with three suitors--the shepherd Gabriel Oak, the yeoman farmer Boldwood, and dashing Sergeant Troy--she discovers the difference between seduction and courtship; between infatuation and romance carved from "hard prosaic reality".
