    Despite having a good life

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct. Do I need an article in before "countryside"?

    Despite having a good life, Anna could never accustom to the city. She yearned for countryside until her death.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Despite having a good life

    I would use "despite having lived a good life" given that she's now dead.
