A young woman, swayed away by passion, sees a prospect to break away a dull life and to experience true love. And as passion dies, she recovers herself treed in a loveless, tyrannous marriage.

What makes this book stand out?

A very worthwhile read, for its emotional wallop and as an interesting glance into Maugham's growth as a writer.

Read it for

It shows Maugham's bent for introducing characters as three-dimensional people with naturalistic motivations and needs.

Don't read it for

Some of the writing is a little valued and melodramatic compared to his blunt, raw later work.
