Complete and unabridged.
Set against the seasonal changes of Egdon Heath, The Return of the Native is the story of Eustacia Vye, a proud and passionate young woman, whose heart leads her inevitably towards tragedy.
A delay in the marriage of Damon Wildeve and Thomasin Yeobright has allowed Wildeve time for second thoughts. He visits his former love, Eustacia, and is made to decide which of the two women to marry, for Eustacia has a prior claim and is of higher birth. Both women, however, are found to have rivals for Wildeve, and he must act quickly to secure a bride.
Thus the ambitions, passions and prejudices of the rural community are played out, each character facing dilemmas and moral decisions, possessing human weaknesses and struggling against a destiny that they cannot hope either to avoid or to conquer.

Read information about the authorThomas Hardy, OM, was an English author of the naturalist movement, although in several poems he displays elements of the previous romantic and enlightenment periods of literature, such as his fascination with the supernatural. He regarded himself primarily as a poet and composed novels mainly for financial gain. The bulk of his work, set mainly in the semi-fictional land of Wessex, delineates characters struggling against their passions and circumstances. Hardy's poetry, first published in his 50s, has come to be as well regarded as his novels, especially after The Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. The term cliffhanger is considered to have originated with Thomas Hardy's serial novel A Pair of Blue Eyes in 1873. In the novel, Hardy chose to leave one of his protagonists, Knight, literally hanging off a cliff staring into the stony eyes of a trilobite embedded in the rock that has been dead for millions of years. This became the archetypal — and literal — cliff-hanger of Victorian prose.
