D. H. Lawrence's famous short story, set against the background of the first world war, and examining the quintessence of Englishness, relationships and paternity in an idyllic rural setting. Egbert and Winifred are deeply in love when they first marry and settle in the picturesque thatched cottage which Winifred's father has given her on his estate. But as their relationships develops and alters, and as they have children and become increasingly dependent financially on Winifred's father, the cracks in their relationship become ever deeper. An accident involving their eldest daughter compounds the problem... and then when war breaks out and Egbert becomes a soldier, things change for ever. Download and start listening now!
