Tess of de D'Urbervilles - Thomas Hardy

Matches the book!

A ne'er-do-well exploits his gentle daughter's beauty for social advancement in this masterpiece of tragic fiction. Hardy's 1891 novel defied convention to focus on the rural lower class for a frank treatment of sexuality and religion. Then and now, his sympathetic portrait of a victim of Victorian hypocrisy offers compelling reading.

My thoughts and opinion:
Sad to say that I did not finish this book. I read about 100 pages and just had to stop. I was so excited to read a "classic" but this made me remember why I don't read classics: they're mostly overrated.
