Set during World War I, a married Scottish soldier, instead of returning home, courts a displaced German countess in occupied Germany. The narrative revolves around a relationship that is not condoned by the society. The complexities of a love that is not reciprocated and whose boundaries are not defined. D. H. Lawrence's fascinating novella deala with the dehumanising effects of war on an English captain.
