Barbara, a young and impetuous heiress, rejects the stern Lord Uplandtowers to elope with a poor but handsome man, Edmund Willowes. When Barbara’s parents send Edmund to Europe, they hope to change him into a more suitable match for their daughter. But after disaster strikes, Edmund returns in a way nobody could have imagined.

An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
Barbara chooses a handsome man over someone of her own class. Unfortunately, a tragedy happens which causes her to rethink her choice.
Hardy rarely tells a story with a happy ending, so don't look for one here.
B J Harrison is adequate as the narrator, but nothing special, and sometimes his pauses are just off...
I love Hardy, and this story is beautifully written.
