A Room with a View

By E.M. Forster (Author)

Miss Lucy Honeychurch is on a tour of Italy with her cousin and chaperone Miss Charlotte Bartlett when she encounters the young George Emerson, on a similar tour with his father. George finds himself drawn to the pretty, spirited Lucy, while Lucy is intrigued by George's rejection of "proper" behavior. Despite her attraction to George, Lucy later becomes engaged to Cecil Vyse, a London 'sophisticate' whose upper class status makes him an excellent match; but when she discovers that George Emerson and his father have rented a villa close to her family home, Lucy must choose between convention and genuine emotion.

A comedy of manners, A Room with a View is the perfect blend of gentle satire and a predictable, sweet love story—perfect for fans of Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde.

E. M. Forster (1879–1970) was a celebrated writer and human rights activist best known for A Room with a View, A Passage to India, Howards End, and the posthumously published love story Maurice. Forster’s combined works reflected his deep commitment to “curiosity, a free mind, belief in good taste, and belief in the human race.”
