Summary
  • Where angels fear to tread: On a journey to Tuscany with her young friend and traveling companion Caroline Abbott, widowed Lilia Herriton falls in love with both Italy and a handsome Italian much younger than herself, and decides to stay. Furious, her dead husband's family send Lilia's brother-in-law to Italy to prevent a misalliance, but he arrives too late. Lilia had already married the Italian and becomes pregnant again
  • The longest journey: Rickie Elliot is a student at early 20th century Cambridge, a university that seems like paradise to him, amongst bright if cynical companions, when he receives a visit from two friends, an engaged young woman, Agnes Pembroke, and her older brother, Herbert. The early promise of his future as a writer comes to nothing as he allows himself to be persuaded into a loveless marriage to Agnes after her financée is killed, and tied to a suffocating job arranged by her brother Herbert
  • A room with a view: The first part of the novel is set in Florence, Italy and describes a Lucy Honeychurch's confusion at the Pensione Bertolini over her feelings for an Englishman staying at the same hotel. As part two begins, Lucy has returned to Surrey, England to her family home, Windy Corner. Cecil proposes yet again at Windy Corner, and this time she accepts. Lucy meets the Englishman again back in England, and must struggle with her confused feelings
  • Howard's End: he book is about three families in England at the beginning of the twentieth century: the Wilcoxes, who are rich capitalists with a fortune made in the Colonies; the half-German Schlegel siblings (Margaret, Tibby, and Helen), who have a lot in common with the real-life Bloomsburg Group; and the Basts, a couple who are struggling members of the lower-middle class
