A Room with a View
Narrated by Rebecca Hall
Written by E.M. Forster

"This lush, satisfying romance is about having the courage to face one's feelings, and to risk intimacy, fully knowing and being known by another person."

E. M. Forster displays an unusually perceptive view of British society in the early 20th century. Written in 1908, A Room with a View is a social comedy set in Florence, Italy, and Surrey, England. Its heroine, Lucy Honeychurch, struggling against straitlaced Victorian attitudes of arrogance, narrow-mindedness and snobbery, falls in love-while on holiday in Italy-with the socially unsuitable George Emerson. A classic exploration of passion, human nature and social convention.
