Set against the beautiful backdrop of Florence, Italy, during the Edwardian period, young Lucy Honeychurch tours the district with her overbearing, old-fashioned cousin, Charlotte Bartlett. When Lucy meets the eccentric Emerson family, she forms an awkward friendship with their son, George. Through her relationship with the Emersons, and with other tourists, Lucy confronts the strictures of society, and must choose between a life of conformity and one of love.Considered to be author E.M. Forster's most optimistic novel, A Room With a View was written before the First World War redefined British society and loosened many of the constraints of the Edwardian period. The novel is notable for the exploration of sexual and religious freedom, as it captures moments of transition between old ideas and new morals.HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
