Hardy's only historical novel isn't a work of genius, but his extraordinary gift for story telling and crafting tragedy are all here. Like most Hardy novels, it is a plot-driven narrative punctuated with passages of poetic beauty, and a few adrenaline-fuelled action sce...nes to boot. Drags for a bit after the very beginning, but for the most part quite a page-turner. Definitely recommended.
