Synopsis: A city-woman moves to a foreign country with her future husband, giving up all the comforts of cosmopolitan life. Life in the countryside finally takes its toll on her, and she finds herself involved with another man.

Reaction: This was probably a good enough book, but the movie plays out heavy on the drama and little charm to pull you through. Not terrible, but not my cup of tea.
