'Wessex' and its scenery plays a starring role in this story of innocence lost, breaking free, unrequited love and unchecked desires. Examining the sometimes-detrimental relationships between men and women and in turn, their tumultuous trysts with their surroundings, this story follows Bathsheba Everdene and five other central characters, all of whom, like nature, have their own particular virtues and flaws.
