A lovely coming of age novel. The young heroine Lucy struggles to understand herself as she experiences romantic love for the first time and in doing so, must choose between two suitors. Who does she love--the overly-staid, self-absorbed Cecil, to whom she is engaged, or the more romantic George, who stole a kiss in romantic Florence and awakens her passionate nature. Lucy becomes a fully realized female personality in this book and makes her choice.

If you want a little romance in your life - READ this book! There are great characters - George and his father will melt your heart. The observations of life and love throughout the novel will stir your emotions. Yes, you will want to choke the heroine Lucy sometimes, but it is worth it.

Is it wrong of me to have fallen in love with old Mr. Emerson rather than George? :-)<br/><br/>I read this book because I love the movie, yet I have always been dissatisfied with the characterization of Lucy. Her motives escaped me; she always seemed more peevish and spoiled than just &quot;in a muddle.&quot; Happy to report the book explains well why she constantly pursues self-deception and denial. It stems in part from the early influence of her spinster cousin Charlotte, and in part (I believe) from the Edwardian period itself, when English women were just coming into their autonomy. It's a good read; hope you like it.

The elder Mr. Emerson - oh, how I would love to meet him face-to-face. He believed in passion and nonsense and the wonder of living. I desire with all my heart to be Mr. Emerson - now and when I'm dottering along!

Incredibly dull. Life is too short to plow through this drivel.

Forster writes the way Henry James would have IF he had an editor or friend brave enough to cross out all the tedious, overwrought repetitions. Bravo to old Mr. Emerson!

This was my first time reading online in this way. It seemed to get in the way of the story, I think because I found the plot jumpy and disjointed.
