Overview

David Herbert Lawrence was an English writer of novels, plays, poetry and essays. Lawrence was born to a large working class family, his father was a miner and his mother was a schoolmistress. Lawrence based some of his early works off his family life which often featured problems between his parents.

Lawrence was not afraid to give ink to his opinions, some of which created enemies in his country. Eventually this led to much of his work being censored or misrepresented. Lawrence and his wife Frieda Weekley would eventually leave England soon after the end of World War I. Lawrence would only briefly return to England and mostly traveled for the remainder of his life. As Lawrence’s health began to fail, he and his wife finally settled in a villa near Florence, Italy. Some of Lawrence’s best known works are Sons and Lovers, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley’s Lover, the last of which was published just 2 years before his death.

Lawrence’s novel The Lost Girl is the coming of age story about Alvina Houghton. This novel, published in 1920, won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction that year. This edition of The Lost Girl includes a Table of Contents and images of Lawrence, his life, and his works.

I never write reviews but I was so amazed by this novel that I had to. It starts of a little slow and in so doing allows you to really understand the characters... but then the events and the action pick up. Very advanced and beautifully written. Left an excellent loose end for me to wonder about long after I finished reading.

It is by 21st century stards, almost painfully slow. I recommend reading this on a wintery day when the power is out or it will seem to go on forever. It was written in a time of transition when life moved slowly, but a whole nrw age eas about to start. Just one thing -- what kept me going was to find out how it all comes out, but we are left without an outcome! It's like reading Edwin Drood! Rather unsatisfying.
