Synopsis

London, 1922, Edith Thompson, an attractive, confident, financially independent 27-year-old woman, had married during the Great War but soon found her suburban life--and husband, Percy--stifling. Excited by the new freedoms available to women, dreaming of the kind of romantic and glamorous world she found in novels and films, she took a lover, Frederick Bywaters, who was several years her junior. Never in her wildest dreams could Edie have forseen the devastating end to her illicit romance.
