Bathsheba Everdene is young, proud, and beautiful. She is an independent woman and can marry any man she chooses - if she chooses. In fact, she likes her independence, and she likes fighting her own battles in a man’s world. But it is never wise to ignore the power of love. There are three men who would very much like to marry Bathsheba. When she falls in love with one of them, she soon wishes she had kept her independence. She learns that love brings misery, pain, and violent passions that can destroy lives .An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Thomas Hardy original by Clare West.

"The most consistent of all series in terms of language control, length, and quality of storytelling." (David R Hill, ELT Journal Review)
Why are some of us (women) afraid of being tamed? In my opinion it is the job of a man to tame us, ale care of us and love us dearly. Great book, at the end she realizes that Gabriel all along was taking care of her in one way or another and their band became Unbreakable.

If you love Jane Austin but hate her pesky, strong, female leads, Far From the Madding Crowd is the book for you! A bonafied nut job of a female lead who was independent (albeit ditsy) but brought to her knees by the womanizing bad boy, meanwhile an obsessive homicidal man forced her to make promises she doesn't want to, all while the "friend zoned" laborer waits by her side to pick up the pieces of her heart.
