Book Description HTML

Hardy distrusted the application of 19th Century empiricism to history because he felt that it marginalized important human elements. In this tale of a woman courted by three competing suitors during the Napoleonic Wars, Hardy explores the subversive effects of ordinary human desire and conflicting loyalties on systematized versions of history.
