Summary

The Dark Flower has a universal theme - the positive powers and the disruptive effects of sexuality and desire.

It is the story of Mark Lennan and his infatuation, adulterous affair, conventional marriage and obsession for a younger woman.

The author drew on his own experiences for much of the substance of his work and was truly a free thinker with regard to the relationship between the sexes. Despite the moral debate, Galsworthy's prose has enormous narrative strength which sweeps the listener along from start to finish.

Caught Me by Surprise

I didn't think this book was going to delve so deeply into the psyche of a man's quest for love and fulfillment. I think this is an exceptional book by an exceptional writer.
