The fates of two ill-matched couples intertwine in this poignant masterpiece from one of England’s greatest novelists Eustacia Vye is as wild and beautiful as the landscape that surrounds her grandfather’s house on Egdon Heath. Dark-haired, tempestuous, and haughty, she yearns to escape her rural corner of England, and believes that by marrying Clym Yeobright, a native of the heath just returned from Paris, she will find the romance and adventure her heart craves. But Clym’s interests run in the opposite direction—toward comfort, community, and tradition—and the young couple’s happy union soon turns miserable. When a former suitor pays a fateful visit, Eustacia must decide whether to break her vows to Clym or forego her exotic dreams forever.   One of Thomas Hardy’s most beloved novels, The Return of the Native brilliantly evokes the dangerous allure of romantic fantasies. Rich in mythological allusions yet grounded in the hard realities of nineteenth-century village life, it is one of the most heartbreaking tragedies ever told.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Dallas Cowboys’ Greg Hardy Suspension Now 4 Games For Assaulting Girlfriend

Since basically getting a do-over after being convicted of assaulting his girlfriend, Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy got his suspension reduced from 10 games to four games. It helped that said significant other refused to cooperate the second time around.

Reports TMZ:

Allegedly beating up your girlfriend nets you the same suspension as allegedly deflating footballs … that’s the message the NFL is sending after they reduced the suspension of Dallas Cowboy Greg Hardy to just four games.

Hardy was initially suspended for 10 games back in April, after the league concluded Hardy attacked his girlfriend, Nicole Holder.

Hardy was convicted of assault, but appealed the decision … which led to a new trial. Holder refused to cooperate in the re-trial and the charges were dropped.

How much money and gifts do you think the girlfriend got hit off with? See what we did there?

Soon, Howie begins to realize that the town might be a strange pagan cult, one given to unbridled sexuality and possible human sacrifice.
