The French Lieutenant’s Woman

by Charlotte Reads Classics

The French Lietutenant’s Woman, John Fowles

“Charles Smithson, a respectable engaged man, meets Sarah Woodruff as she stands on the Cobb at Lyme Regis, staring out to sea. Charles falls in love, but Sarah is a disgraced woman, and their romance will defy all the stifling conventions of the Victorian age.”

Loved it. The story is readable on its own, but throw in Fowles’ victoriana facts, his role as an obvious modern day narrator, and the fact that theres bloody three endings… Spectacular!
