Lucy Honeychurch arrives in Florence under the supervision of her imperious cousin Charlotte Bartlett, who is furious that their rooms do not have views over the River Arno. Mr Emerson and his son George overhear and give up their rooms to the ladies. Despite her cousin’s objections, this first encounter with the Emersons leads to a passionate romance between Lucy and George. After returning home to England, Lucy forgets George and accepts the proposal of the proper but conceited Cecil Vyse. Fate intervenes, bringing the Emersons back into Lucy’s life, and she is forced to choose between social duty and her heart. Forster’s perspicacious account of Edwardian England tackles themes of class, culture and romance.
