This was a best-seller in its day (1969) and became a great movie starring Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons. Set in 1867 in Lyme, England, an engaged paleontologist (Irons) meets Streep, the scorned mistress of the title. Their relationship, the social rules of the day, and the characters' development drive the plot.
