Publisher's Summary

Deep in the grounds of Welland House lies an ancient memorial tower, surrounded by a prehistoric wilderness that isolates it from the rest of the land. When one day Viviette Constantine, the wife of the estate's owner, investigates the tower, she there discovers Swithin St. Cleeve, a young astronomer who introduces her to the majesty and wonders of the night sky. Instantly drawn to Swithin, and with her husband abroad, Viviette offers him use of the tower and becomes a kind of apprentice to him, and then, eventually, a lover. Guarded by the tower's safe seclusion, the two star-crossed lovers "sweep the heavens" and create their own private world, away from the judgement of society... Will they keep their secret and escape the forces set to drive them apart?

Melodramatic

The narrator has a nice voice but read this in an overly melodramatic wT. the voices he used for the protagonists was awful. Not one if Thomas Hardy’s better books.

Very Enjoyable

A good read. I may have changed the ending a bit if I had written it, still, a relaxing story.
