Thomas Hardy’s moving story of star-crossed lovers shows human beings at the mercy of forces beyond their control, setting a tragic drama of human passion against a backdrop of space and scientific discovery.

Unhappily married, Lady Constantine defies social standards when she falls in love with the youthful and socially inferior Swithin St. Cleeve. In an ancient monument converted into an astronomical observatory, they isolate themselves from society and create their own private universe—until the pressures of the outside world threaten to tear them apart.

Listener Opinions

    " What a love story. I found it amusing ( and a bit frightening) that society has come so far in scandalous love affairs. Wow, a guy talked to girl and everyone is all aflutter! I have to admit, the book was a bit dramatic and the ending was just unbelievable, but I enjoyed the book. "

    " I really liked this book about the forbidden love between Swithin, the 20 year old astronomer and Viviette, the much older woman of 29. The story is short in length but takes many different twists and turns making it a fun (maybe not quite the right word) and easy read. Although the author's writing could be quite descriptive, and sometimes lost on me, I also found him to be contemporary at the same time with mini cliffhangers drawing you so easily from one chapter to the next. "

    " Interesting story but I wasn't crazy about the ending. "

    " It's Thomas Hardy and astronomy. How could it not be one of my favorites? It's a little silly in places, and the ending is INFURIATING, but I love it all the same. "
