Storyline

Bathsheba Everdene is a willful, passionate girl who is never satisfied with anything less than a man’s complete and helpless adoration, and she captures the lives and loves of three very different men: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer; William Boldwood, a prosperous man in his early forties; and Sergeant Frank Troy, a handsome, reckless swordsman given to sudden fits of violence.
