The Trumpet Major

Author(s): Thomas Hardy; Richard Nemesvari (Editor)

Classic fiction


During England's wars with Napoleon, lovely Anne Garland is pursued by an ardent trio: the cowardly but wealthy Festus Derriman; the wayward sailor Bob Loveday; and Bob's brother John, trumpet-major in a British regiment. This 1880 novel has the brothers follow Wellington and Nelson into battle and--in a departure for Hardy--concludes with a relatively happy ending.
