'My first intimation of the possibilities of fiction' Zadie Smith
More than a love story, A Room with a View is a penetrating social comedy and a brilliant study of contrasts - in values, social class, and cultural perspectives - and the ingenuity of fate. Its heroine, Lucy Honeychurch, visits Italy with her prim cousin Charlotte as a chaperone, where she meets the unconventional, lower class Mr. Emerson and his son, George. Upon her return to England, Lucy becomes engaged to the supercilious Cecil Vyse, but finds herself increasingly torn between the expectations of the world in which she moves and the passionate yearnings of her heart.

“A Room with a View”
This Edwardian social comedy is the original holiday romance. Take the book with you to Italy to see how the English abroad have changed in the last 100 years.
A wonderfully innocent love story. This book is a lovely read and makes the stresses of the modern world fade away.
