Description: Set in London before World War I, this novel explores the truth of feelings and particularly the nature of love. It is, in that sense, a love story, but in the hands of Virginia Woolf, it transcends conventional romance to pose a series of crucial questions about women, intellectual freedom, and marriage.
Episode 1: Katherine and Mary are challenged over their assumptions about love, in pre-First World War London. With Kristin Scott Thomas.
Episode 2: Katharine is engaged, but her secret admirer is also in Norfolk, invited by torn suffrage campaigner Mary. With Dervla Kirwan."William, how you do go on about feelings"
