really liked it

This is the first Hardy I've wanted to hide in the freezer because I could see what was going to happen and didn't want it to. As it turned out, thankfully in some aspects I was wrong and I was able to breathe a sigh and carry on. It is as near to a happy ending as you will get with Hardy and I enjoyed it. I probably prefer Tess or Jude the Obscure, but this paints a beautiful picture of the wild heath and there characters to warm your heart. Definitely worth reading.

Ann Have you looked at Catherine's list? She tells me
which books she likes and then I read them...and now I have your recommendations...thanks. I love books to be filtered for me. Just finished I just finished The Winter Sea, historical novel set in Scotland by Susanna Kearsley which I'd give a B. Will try some of yours.
