Hard Times

The repressed desire of beautiful Louisa, trapped in a loveless marriage to Bounderby, a powerful mill-owner, is awakened by the handsome seducer James Harthouse. Thomas Gradgrind, her father, is forced to see love and imagination triumph over hid blind faith in "facts, facts, facts!".
Book by Charles Dickens
