Lawrence's first novel is set in the Eastwood area of his youth, and involves such themes as the damage associated with mismatched marriages, and the border between town and country. The book includes some notable descriptions of nature and the impact of industrialisation, with a provincialism that may be compared with that of George Eliot and Thomas Hardy.
