The story is set in late 19th century rural corner of South England. The daughter of timber merchant Melbury, Grace, returns to the town after finishing school. Her father now believes she can find a better husband than her childhood sweetheart, woodsman Giles. She marries handsome young doctor FitzPiers, but soon finds out he's not the man of her dreams and she still loves Giles.
A timeless tale of passion and desire.
Did You Know?
Oh, Giles, if only you could tell your heart to be free.
You can't tell the heart. The heart hopes. Most of all where it's hopeless.
