Summary
"Travelling the dirt roads of Wessex in search of work, Michael Henchard, a farm worker, auctions his wife Susan and baby daughter in a moment of drunken madness at a country fair. Years later, Susan and her daughter return, seeking Michael in Casterbridge where he has become a rich and respected member of Wessex society. Driven by the need to make amends, he re-marries Susan but in a tragic twist of fate, she dies, but not before leaving a letter containing a shocking revelation." -- Container
