Dick Dewy and Fancy Day, the lovers; the simpleton Leaf; Penney the shoemaker; and the rest of the Mellstock rustics inhabit this charming sunlit novel, the first in the great Wessex canon. The book is divided into the four seasons of the year and, like a happily-remembered childhood, a tranquil timelessness and Arcadian appropriateness is established in each.

Author Bio: Thomas Hardy

Thomas Hardy (1840–1928), English poet, dramatist, and novelist, was born on the Egdon Heath in Dorset. He studied in Dorchester and apprenticed to an architect before leaving for London, where he began to write. Unable to find a public for his poetry, which idealized the rural life, he turned to the novel and met with success as well as controversy. The strong public reaction against some of his darker themes turned him back to writing verse. Today several of his novels are considered masterpieces of tragedy.
