A clever, engrossing portrait of class and prejudice When attractive, impulsive English widow Lidia takes a holiday in Italy, she causes a scandal by marrying Gino, a dashing and highly unsuitable Italian twelve years her junior. Prim and snobbish, her in-laws make no attempt to hide their disapproval, and when Lidias decision eventually brings disaster, her English relatives embark on an expedition to face the uncouth foreigner. But their mission yields results that are unexpected, to say the least. Confronted by the beauty of Italy and the charm and vitality of the disreputable Gino, their own narrow lives are shattered by emotion, upheaval, and violence.

Edward Morgan Forster was born on January 1, 1879, in London, England. He never knew his father, who died when Forster was an infant. Forster graduated from King's College, Cambridge, with B.A. degrees in classics (1900) and history (1901), as well as an M.A. (1910). In the mid-1940s he returned to Cambridge as a professor, living quietly there until his death in 1970. Forster was named to the Order of Companions of Honor to the Queen in 1953. Forster's writing was extensively influenced by the traveling he did in the earlier part of his life. After graduating from Cambridge, he lived in both Greece and Italy, and used the latter as the setting for the novels Where Angels Fear to Tread…
