Women in Love - An Empowering, Emotionally Intense Story about Love and Self-Discovery

One of the most emotionally intense novels of the early 20th century, and quite possibly one of the best literary works of D.H. Lawrence - maybe aside from his exceptional work known as Lady Chatterley - Women in Love is a story about two conflicted young couples and their tireless and often dramatic attempts to find their place in the world and in each other's hearts.

Written in 1920, this complex love story focuses on the tale of two young women, Ursula Brangwen and her sister Gertrun, who are coping with earning their living and trying to continue their lives in post-WWI Britain, the war having had a strong impact on themselves, their families and the men they hope to marry.

Ursula is attracted to a young gentleman known as Rupert Birkin, who works as a school supervisor. At the same time, her sister is involved with a young man named Gerald Crich, whose father owns a mine. The imaginative intrigues, filled with complex emotions, dreams of happiness, marriage, wealth and power, and hidden sexual desires, combine throughout the plot to create one of the most volatile, expressive and entirely engaging tales of love and romance you've ever read.

Any reader familiar with Lawrence's work will, at once identify his unique imprint on this novel, and recognize the superiority of his writing style and skill, considered by many to be at its best in the 1920s. Among his other literary works, however, none have reached a level of complexity and intensity that could truly compete with Women in Love.

This romance novel is still considered a fond and exciting read, even almost 100 years after it was written; according to literary experts, anyone who is truly a fan of D.H. Lawrence simply has to read it and enjoy the rich, detailed and incredibly beautiful world created by the renowned author at the zenith of his career.
