Lawrence's notions about women are peculiar, in his time, our time, or any time. Nevertheless, he writes like an angel.

A sequel to the banned novel The Rainbow, Women in Love follows the tumultuous lives of the Brangwen sisters: Gudrun and Ursula. The sisters are intelligent, incisive, and observant, but differ in temperament. Gudrun, darker both by nature and in appearance, has the soul of an artist, fired by a caustic rebelliousness. Ursula, a teacher in the local grade school, is a fragile beauty, driven by a heart that overflows with emotion.
After returning to the gritty coal town of her upbringing, Gudrun falls in love with Gerald Crich, the son of the owner of the local colliery. The willful Gudrun and the earthy, powerful Gerald seem polar opposites, but are inexorably - and tragically - drawn to each other. Ursula, meanwhile, falls in love iwth the cerebral iconoclast Rupert Birkin, whose anguished intellect leads him on a quest for something better than what ordinary life seems to hold.
Through the tortourous stuggles of his characters to find their separate and combined destinies, D.H.Lawrence has woven a comples meditation on the nature of romantic love, sexual passion, and spiritual commitment.
