John Fowles The French Lieutenant’s Woman
With Dr Jane Mackay

This novel is an exquisite piece of work, combining modern awareness with an evocation of Thomas Hardy’s Dorset. John Fowles’ love affair with Lyme Regis gives the setting an intimacy and poignancy that sweeps the reader up and deeply into the feeling life of the story. Come and enjoy an awareness of Victorian Dorset combined with a modern intelligence and sensibility.
