The Painted Veil

The Painted Veil

W. Somerset Maugham


Set in England and Hong Kong within the Twenties, The Painted Veil is the tale of the gorgeous yet love-starved Kitty Fane. while her husband discovers her adulterous affair, he forces her to accompany him to the guts of a cholera epidemic. Stripped of the British society of her formative years and the small yet powerful society she fought so tough to achieve in Hong Kong, she is pressured by way of her awakening judgment of right and wrong to think again her lifestyles and how you can love.

The Painted Veil is a fantastically written confirmation of the human capability to develop, to alter, and to forgive.
