A Look Inside
Main Description
One of Thomas Hardy's most popular novels, this is a delightful and humorous depiction of life in an early Victorian rural community. Its story delicately balances the concerns of the Mellstock parish choir with a romance between one of its members and a village schoolmistress. This edition presents a critically established text, offering readers for the first time what Hardy actually wrote.
