Publisher's Summary

Hardy's third novel, A Pair of Blue Eyes, follows the story of Elfride Swancourt. The daughter of the rector of Endelstow, a sparse, sea-swept parish in Cornwall, Elfride is caught between two suitors of very different backgrounds: Stephen Smith, a young architect restoring the old parish church; and the respectable, older man of London society, Henry Knight. The blue-eyed and high-spirited protagonist must untangle the conflicting messages of her heart and her mind.

    "What a talent"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely for someone who loves beautiful descriptive writing and development of characters

    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Pair of Blue Eyes?

    To learn that her father did exactly as he warned his daughter of doing

    What about Anna Bentinck’s performance did you like?

    She's wonderful with a steady, listenable pace and distinct characterizations

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As are all of Hardy's books, this was a tradegy. I did cry at the stupid decisions the supposedly educated lover made - even for his time.

    Any additional comments?

    Hardy's books are gorgeous and meaty and everything I love in a story.
