Description

Germany 1907. Frieda, daughter of aristocrat Baron von Richthofen, has rashly married English professor Ernest Weekley and moved to provincial England. Visiting her family in Munich, a city alive with new ideas of revolution and free love, and goaded by a toxic sibling rivalry with her sisters, 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 young writer D.H. Lawrence, a man whose creative energy answers her own needs. Their scandalous affair and tempestuous relationship unleashes a creative outpouring that, to a degree, changes the course of literature – and society – forever. But for Frieda, this fulfilment comes at a terrible personal cost.
