Publisher Comments:

Thomas Hardy's exploration of his most tragic hero, Michael Henchard, is the classic tale of over-ambition. From his drunken sale of his wife and baby at a country fair to his subjugation of a farming village, Henchard's life is an epic attempt to bring the world to heel as he hides even from himself all vestiges of emotional vulnerability.

Synopsis:

In Thomas Hardy's classic novel, an ambitious man discovers that the blind energies and defiant acts that brought him to power can also destroy him.

Beautifully written - couldn't put it down! Though the characters are not quite as developed as in other Hardy novels, you still can't help but be transported to their time and absorbed in their lives and well-being. A true masterpiece!
