The breathtaking English countryside sets the stage for a spellbinding triangle of love, desire and destiny in Thomas Hardy's timeless romantic classic about an ambitious beauty and the two men who will sacrifice everything to claim her. Eustacia Vye hates the rural home she shares with her grandfather and dreams of the day she can escape "this graveyard of a heath." The peasants call her a witch, for she enchants every man she meets...including her handsome suitor Damon Wildeve, who has promised to marry another. But when a well-to-do young man returns home from Paris, she sends Wildeve back to his fiancee, and uses all her seductive powers to win Clym Yeobright's heart. Soon Eustacia is making wedding plans of her own, but unknwn to her, Clym has decided to stay in the country. Now their footsteps are set upon a road that will lead them from the height of romantic passion to the crossroads of temptation and tragedy in an unforgettable epic masterpiece.
