Synopsis

A TIMES HISTORICAL FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH AND PICK OF THE YEAR



The extraordinary story of Frieda von Richthofen, wife of D. H. Lawrence and the inspiration for Lady Chatterley's Lover.



'Effervescent' The Times

'A convincing evocation of a remarkable woman' Sunday Times

'Clever and deeply humane' Observer

'A lush and absorbing portrait of a fascinating woman who refused to compromise on what really matters: to be known, to love, to be beloved' Polly Clark, author of Larchfield



Germany, 1907

Aristocrat Frieda von Richthofen has rashly married English professor Ernest Weekley. Visiting her sisters in Munich, she is captivated by a city alive with ideas of revolution and free love, and, goaded by sibling rivalry with her sisters and the need to be more than mother and wife, Frieda embarks on a passionate affair that is her sensual and intellectual awakening.



England, 1912

Trapped in her marriage to Ernest, Frieda meets the penniless but ambitious younger writer D. H. Lawrence. Their scandalous affair and tempestuous relationship unleashes a creative outpouring that influences the course of literature forever. But for Frieda, this fulfilment comes at a terrible personal cost.



'Hard to put down thanks to its heroine's audacity and strength' Stylist
