It is 1870. In the Wessex village of Mellstock, life has gone on much the same for generations. At the heart of the village is the Quire whose singing accompanies the community through the year. The seasons come and go with their predictable rhythms, but change is afoot with the arrival of the new Parson, Reverend Maybold, whose plans to modernise worship at the Church do not include the Quire. And what of the new School Mistress Miss Fancy Day? She is refined, educated, and fair of face; surely, she must be in need of a husband, but will she marry to please her father, or to improve herself or for love?
