Description
Bound by tradition and circumstance, an innocent young woman makes a fateful choice, in this heartrending novel from the author of Far from the Madding Crowd Convinced that his impoverished family has noble connections, John Durbeyfield implores his daughter, Tess, to visit the wealthy Mrs. D’Urberville and claim kin. Reluctantly, Tess agrees, but when she falls prey to the manipulations of Alec D’Urberville, the widow’s dissolute son, her search for love and happiness takes a disastrous turn. An earnest suitor named Angel Clare offers hope for salvation, but Tess must decide whether to confess her sins to the minister’s son—or bury them forever.   First published in 1891, Tess of the D’Urbervilles scandalized Victorian readers with its frank depictions of female sexuality and its impassioned criticism of social conventions. Now widely recognized as Thomas Hardy’s masterpiece, this tragic story of virtue destroyed is one of the most moving and unforgettable novels in English literature.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
