About this Recording

HARDY, T.: Far from the Madding Crowd (Abridged)

In a remote corner of early-Victorian England, where traditional practices remain untouched by time, Bathsheba Everdene stands out as a beacon of feminine independence and self-reliance. However, when confronted with three suitors, among them the dashing Captain Troy, she shows a reckless capriciousness which threatens the stability of the whole community.
