Tess Of The D’Urbervilles – Thomas Hardy

Tess of the d'urbervillesREAD FOR BOOKCLUB

Chosen by Ros

In this 1891 book, a poor young woman discovers she may be descended from nobility and goes in search of a better life, but through a series of fatal events discovers she is the master of her destiny.

❚ “For such an aged novel, this contains very contemporary ideas. And while Tess is presented as the ultimate victim, she is a fascinating character study and grows in moral stature as each page commences. She kind of lives beyond the page and she is the reason for reading this book.” – Rachel
