Review: Under the Greenwood Tree

Under the Greenwood Tree
Under the Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The second of Hardy’s novels to be published, this is a light affair recounting a year in the life of Mellstock and the village choir (or Quire) and the romance of one of the choir’s number with the new schoolteacher. The novel is shorter and less dense than Hardy’s later novels, and certainly less bleak, black, and depressing. And despite its brevity and fluffiness, there is still room for a secret or two to be hidden away…
