Weatherbury's newest resident, Bathsheba Everdene, is a bold female presence in an otherwise traditional rural community. In her employ at the largest estate in the county, she draws interest from three very different suitors, each of which confounds and complicates her position in their own unique way.
Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd explores the mercurial position of a single woman in a man's world, and plumbs the depths of how our psyches interface through various expressions of love, friendship, ambition, and sacrifice.
