This biography about the woman that Lawrence called "the chief friend of my youth" focuses on Jessie and reveals how she was, in her own right, a remarkable person. This book explains the circumstances of their meeting in 1901 and how she gave him the incentive to write; it describes the difficulties surrounding their growing love and their break-up. Although devastated by Lawrence's "fearful treachery" in portraying her as Miriam Leivers, Jessie has the courage and motivation to pursue her own ambitions which were to gain independence and develop intellectually. This is the story of a Nottinghamshire farmer's daughter who, after the agony and ecstasy of loving D.H. Lawrence, found happiness and fulfilment as a teacher, wife and writer whose most cherished goal was to share "in the feast of the human spirit".
