Frieda

Annabel Abbs (HACHETTE AUS­TRALIA)

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Wellbeing -

This novel sets up aris­to­crat Frieda von Richthofen, who was the in­spi­ra­tion for Lady Chat­ter­ley’s Lover, as its en­tic­ingly flawed hero­ine. Trapped in a rushed mar­riage, Frieda’s life is un­ex­pect­edly trans­formed when she meets the broke yet cap­ti­vat­ing writer D.H. Lawrence. Their scan­dalous af­fair broke the bound­aries of sex­ual free­dom in Eng­land in 1912 and was the awak­en­ing for the cre­ation of the fa­mous novel which was banned in Eng­land for more than 30 years.
