This captivating novel charts the journey of a woman caught between two worlds and two lives - one mired in dreary England and a life of convention, the other set in the vibrant Italian landscape holding the promise of sensual liberation.

Women in Love by D. H. Lawrence

Women in Love continues where The Rainbow left off, with the third generation of the Brangwens.
