About This Book
Bathsheba Everdene, just past twenty, inherits a prosperous farm in rural England. She says she does not want a husband, yet three men pursue her. Will she marry the dashing, handsome, yet self-indulgent Sergeant Troy? Or will she choose wealthy William Boldwood, who loves her passionately, but whom she does not care for? Or will her choice be the steady, reliable Gabriel Oak, once her equal, but now her hired hand?
