Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Sir Thomas Henry Hall Caine CH KBE (14 May 1853 – 31 August... More > 1931), usually known as Hall Caine, was a Manx author. He is best known as a novelist and playwright of the late Victorian and the Edwardian eras. In his time, he was exceedingly popular, and, at the peak of his success, his novels outsold those of his contemporaries. Many of his novels were also made into films. His novels were primarily romances, involving love triangles, but also addressed some of the more serious political and social issues of the day.Caine acted as secretary to Dante Gabriel Rossetti and at one time he aspired to become a man of letters. To this end he published a number of serious works, but these had little success. Excerpt from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hall_Caine< Less
A Room With a View By E.M. Forster
eBook (ePub): $3.99
A Room with a View is a defining romantic tale of one woman's life in a repressed Edwardian England. The novel focuses on social and political issues of the day, especially between conservative and... More > radical thinking. This is embodied in the differences between the Medieval-minded characters Mr. Beebe, Miss Bartlett, and Cecil Vyse, and the Renaissance-minded character Lucy. Her character struggles with what society expects from women, compared to what she truly wants out of life. Should she marry the stuffy high class Cecil Vyse? Or should she follow her own heart and get with intelligent, yet broke George Emerson? A Room with a View is Forster's most romantic and lighthearted novels, but it's still a brilliant work of art. For a "lighter" read, Forster still packs in an amazing amount of detail. You will certainly find something new each time you read this gem. It was ranked number 79 by the Modern Library on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.< Less

More > bought her first home — a 1970s city town house, one of twenty-four in the row house development on her street.
