The French Lieutenant's Woman, Paperback / softback Book

The French Lieutenant's Woman Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The perfect gift for Valentine's DayWidely acclaimed since publication, The French Lieutenant's Woman is John Fowles' best-loved novel and the ultimate in epic historical romance.

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. 'A remarkable performance... As gripping as The Collector and The Magus' Observer
