The Lost Girl
The Lost Girl | D. H. Lawrence
5 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
Take a mining townlet like Woodhouse, with a population of ten thousand people, and three generations behind it. This space of three generations argues a certain well-established society. The old "County" has fled from the sight of so much disembowelled coal, to flourish on mineral rights in regions still idyllic. Remains one great and inaccessible magnate, the local coal owner: three generations old, and clambering on the bottom step of the "County," kicking off the mass below. Rule him out. A well established society in Woodhouse, full of fine shades, ranging from the dark of coal-dust to grit of stone-mason and sawdust of timber-merchant, through the lustre of lard and butter and meat, to the perfume of the chemist and the disinfectant of the doctor, on to the serene gold-tarnish of bank-managers, cashiers for the firm, clergymen and such-like, as far as the automobile refulgence of the general-manager of all the collieries.

I found this in my local indie even though only the On the Road version was showing in stock online and it is exactly what I wanted for my bff for XMas and I am so happy.

Kind of a slow burner, bits are happening in this book and I am still interested in Alvina's story but I feel like I'm still waiting for the real story to start and I'm already half way through.

Is there a more inviting sight on a cold, rainy night than loads of blankets and a book?😍

DeborahSmall @Bookish.Heart I ordered it from Amazon! Not a huge selection but some of my favourites. @charl08 @LeahBergen @faibka I'd really love to to do the secret Santa a few have posted about. Some lovely bookish accessories we know everyone here would appreciate 📚❤️ 3y
Eyglo I own one exactly like this one too! Have to admit I picked it solely because I liked the title - I've never read the book 😶👌 3y
