Book 23 – Under the Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy

Under the Greenwood Tree was suggested to me via a discussion on the interwebs (can’t remember where) about church music. No piccy this week as I read this as a freebie on my kindle.

A fairly light read for Hardy; no-one drowns, dies in the workhouse or is hanged for murder. In fact only two things happen. The West Gallery quire of Mellstock parish church is sacked by the new vicar and replaced by the village school mistress who plays the organ. Dick Dewey, a young man of the village woos and wins said school mistress. And er, that’s it.

Quite a fun read and I did enjoy some of the incidental scenes and characters.
