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 digraced woman, and their romance will defy all the stifling conventions of the Victorian age.
Widely acclaimed since publication, this is the best-love of John Fowles' novels.
