One of Hardy’s most famous books, followed by Jude the Obscure, about a woman’s journeys through life. Follows the life of Tess, and her family’s sudden noble lineage, as she meets Angel, then Alec and in the future when she finds true love all over again.

I found this novel very interesting, separated into seven different books. I seem to always love these life stories that take the reader from the beginning to the end of the life of the protagonist. There were many times I became confused as to the storyline and had to reread portions because I would become distracted, but overall the story is one more intriguing.
