Before Downton Abbey, there was Howard's End, a delightful romp of the classes.

Masterful descriptive narrative with intense emotional drama makes this one of the best novels concerning turn-of-the-century England. It's a fascinating historical period, with rapid changes in social mores and unsettling technological advances. Don't miss the film either. Only connect!

Warm and witty, this is also a thoughtful and thought-provoking book. A vivid portrait of a specific moment in history, both its social criticism and psychological insights are of surprisingly enduring relevance. One of Forster's more optimistic looks at human attempts to get free of "muddle."

I'm not sure what I love more - Forster's novels or the Merchant/Ivory Productions of his novels. The two sisters here reminded me so much of the sisters in Austen's Sense and Sensibility. Naming one's home is such a charming piece of English culture - a home really does have a character, and we should adopt this custom too!
