      When Alec sees Tess, he is struck dumb and leaves his position to pursue her. Joan leaves to collect her husband but does not come back shortly. Tess eventually leaves home again for work in another town at Flintcomb-Ash farm, where the working conditions are very harsh. After going on a journey of self-discovery in which he scandalously stayed with an older woman for some months, Angel decides that he wishes to become a farmer and begins touring the country, learning about the profession from various farms.

      Tess is the oldest child of John and Joan Durbeyfield, uneducated peasants. Because of the numerous pagan and neo- Biblical references made about her, Tess has been viewed variously as an Earth goddess or as a sacrificial victim. Determined to put her past behind her, she goes to work as a milkmaid in a faraway country farmhouse where she falls in love with a good and kind young man. When he finds out that she has killed Alec he decides to help her flee the area and stays with her until she is eventually caught and apprehended by the police. He tells her to go.

      He tells her that he is upset that her husband is neglecting her and that she should come away with him. When Angel returns to the dairy, he embraces Tess and asks her to marry him. After Alec rapes her in the woods, Tess, being confused and desperately trying to figure out what society demands, begins a relationship with Alec after being pressured into it. On the way back to his estate, Alec drives too fast and frightens Tess who pleads with him to stop.
