Three WeekseBook - 2012
English aristocrat Paul Verdayne is sent to Lucerne to break up his unsuitable love affair with the parson's daughter. The Lady is a Balkan queen on the run from her cruel husband. And so begins their passionate three-week affair, which ends only when the Lady leaves to return to her country. A sensation when first published in 1907, Three Weeks was remarkable for its overt theme of adultery and abundant depictions of its characters'kisses and caresses, and sold over five million copies to scandalized readers. Three weeks was later made into a silent film starring Aileen Pringle and Conrad Nagel.
