About the Book

Using the restoration of a castle as a framework, classic novelist Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) considers the ancient analogy between architecture and philosophy. "Laodicean" is a term for early Christians lukewarm in their beliefs. Hardy's character, passionate architect George Somerset finds himself captivated by "Laodicean" Paula Power, whose views on conventions of any kind are lukewarm at best.

First Sentence

The sun blazed down and down, till it was within half an hour of its setting: but the sketcher still lingered at his occupation of measuring and copying the chevroned doorway - a bold and quaint example of a transitional style of architecture.
