A Room with a View

Author(s): E M Forster

Location(s): Florence, Surrey

Genre(s): Fiction

An Edwardian social comedy, set in Florence and Surrey, UK. Lucy Honeychurch, a charming young Englishwoman, faints into the arms of fellow British traveller as she witnesses a murder in a Florentine Piazza. Her attraction to this man leads her to a battle against snobbery and questioning what is acceptable to a woman of her class. Is it to be convention or passion? Populated by colourful characters and beautifully crafted, it is an absolute must read.
