Joseph Pugh, sick of Oxford and of teaching, decides to take some time off to live in a wild and beautiful Welsh farm valley. There he falls physically ill and is nursed back to health by Bronwen Vaughn, the wife of a neighboring farmer. Slowly, they fall in love, and while that word is never spoken between them, their story is as passionate and tragic as that of Vronsky and Anna Karenina.
