Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. The book stands the test of time presenting themes such as the conflict of faith-based induction verses secular humanism, gender rights, unrequited love and tragic destiny. It is especially relevant to America being the religious country it is compared to the direction of so much of Europe.
