Waterstones Says

A tale of windswept majesty from the mercurial John Fowles, The French Lieutenant’s Woman layers audacious narrative structures on top of an account of a passionate affair in a Victorian Dorset harbour town. Endlessly rewarding and utterly immersive, it is justly one of Fowles’ most famous works.

Widely acclaimed since publication, John Fowles' most beloved novel is the ultimate 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.
