It originally appeared anonymously as a monthly serial in Cornhill Magazine, where it gained a wide readership. Critical notices were plentiful and mostly positive. Hardy revised the text extensively for the 1895 edition and made further changes for the 1901 edition. Gabriel Oak is a young shepherd. With the savings of a frugal life, and a loan, he has leased and stocked a sheep farm. He falls in love with a newcomer six years his junior, Bathsheba Everdene, a proud beauty who arrives to live with her aunt, Mrs Hurst. Over time, Bathsheba and Gabriel grow to like each other well enough, and Bathsheba even saves his life once. However, when he makes her an unadorned offer of marriage, she refuses- she values her independence too much, and him too little. Feeling betrayed and embarrassed, Gabriels blunt protestations only foster her haughtiness. After a few days, she moves to Weatherbury, a village some miles off.All-time 100 Best-Sellers (Classics):US –> http://amzn.to/1GxExAqUK –> http://amzn.to/1fxSBE4Canada –> http://amzn.to/1NnalgT
