On an evening in the latter part of May a middle–aged man was walking homeward from Shaston to the village of Marlott, in the adjoining Vale of Blakemore, or Blackmoor. The pair of legs that carried him were rickety, and there was a bias in his gait which inclined him somewhat to the left of a straight line. He occasionally gave a smart nod, as if in confirmation of some opinion, though he was not thinking of anything in particular. An empty egg–basket was slung upon his arm, the nap of his hat was ruffled, a patch being quite worn away at its brim where his thumb came in taking it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read for lovers of literature and justice... A heartbreaking story of a former time in which women had no rights, no defence, no hope, but that which was tied to the men to whom they attached themselves or cowered beneath. A story of vile injustice that called a generation to challenge cruel systems of religion and government. A tragedy written in beauteous prose that will captivate the reader in each sigh and landscape, and incite hope till the finish... A must read for all lovers of justice and literature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh, Tess! Not a light read. In keeping with Hardy, Tess is a young and innocent girl, that learns the world is not. I loved this book, although, I would loved a different ending, it was true to Tess.
