A Room With A View
First published in 1908, A Room with a View portrays the love of a British woman for an expatriate living in Italy. Caught up in a world of social snobbery, Forster's heroine, Lucy Honeychurch, finds herself constrained by the claustrophobic influence of her British guardians, who encourage her to take up with a well-connected boor. In the end, however, Lucy takes control of her own fate and finds love with a man whose free spirit reminds her of "a room with a view."

Absolutely loved this book. Watched the movie which made me fall more in love with the book, especially the main character Lucy.

I read this book years ago and it was an interesting look at the strict Edwardian rules of society. I'm rereading it and it stands up well to the test of time
