Publisher's Summary

Loosely inspired by a true story, this tender portrait of marriage asks: what do you do when the person you love has to change?
It starts with a question, a simple favour asked by a wife of her husband while both are painting in their studio, setting off a transformation neither can anticipate.
Uniting fact and fiction into an original romantic vision, The Danish Girl eloquently portrays the unique intimacy that defines every marriage and the remarkable story of Lili Elbe, a pioneer in transgender history, and the woman torn between loyalty to her marriage and her own ambitions and desires.
The Danish Girl is an evocative and deeply moving novel about one of the most passionate and unusual love stories of the 20th century. Now a major motion picture starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander, directed by Tom Hooper.

Story had holding power.

Piqued my curiosity about the real Lilli Elbe. I would recommend a little distance between Wikipedia and this story. Enjoy as it is written; it's a departure from biography.
