Sweet Tess, one of the most lovely of heroines, is a provincial girl with a cursed beauty. In a deceitful world, the innocent Tess is drawn into two treacherous romances. Eventually, she is forced to keep a secret that will either tear her heart in two, or worse, forever destroy her chances of happiness. Narrator Imogen Stubbs brings to life the complicated characters that surround Tess. Stubbs’s voice can be both bright and innocent or gruff and detestable as the story switches between joy and sadness. Her skilled performance of Hardy's classic endears us to Tess all over again.
