On a journey to Tuscany, 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 this marriage, but will he arrive in time?

In the meantime, all hell breaks loose as there's a baby and a death in childbirth and Lilia's in-laws are desperate to avoid a scandal, even if they have to travel to Italy themselves, as well as considering it their right and their duty to try to obtain custody of the infant so that he can be raised as an Englishman.

Book Description:

A classic novel, irresistibly repackaged for Christmas.


From the Back Cover:

On travelling to Italy with her friend Caroline Abbott, the impulsive English widow Lilia Herriton outrages her dead husband's family by meeting and quickly becoming engaged to a dashing but deeply unsuitable Italian man twelve years her junior. Infuriated, her ex-brother-in-law Philip sets off from England to her new home in the Tuscan town of Monteriano - but, finding himself unable to persuade Lilia to leave her handsome, uncouth new lover, returns to England without her. When Lilia's marriage leads to sudden tragedy, however, Philip and caroline feel compelled to return once more to Italy, where they are forced to examine their own lives. Deeply moving, Where Angels Fear to Tread is amongst the greatest twentieth-century literary explorations of vice, virtue and the nature of prejudice.

This edition reproduces the Abinger text, and also includes further reading, notes, a chronology, an introduction by Ruth Padel discussing division and culture clash in the novel and an appendix detailing an exchange about the novel between Forster and the poet R.C. Trevelyan.
