A Room with a View by E.M Forster

The story takes place in the euphoric scenery of Italy and rustic England. Lucy, a prim proper lady, meets a reserved and impetuous underclassed lad named George Emerson. There is attraction and chemistry, but he has little connections in society. Her mother would certainly disappprove the match simply based on his lack of money and education. The two young people witness a brawl in Florence which leads to a murder. They both are eternally connected. Lucy's trip finally ends but not before George steals a kiss. Mean while she returns to england and is soon engaged to Cecil, the biggest snob ever. Finally, Lucy realizes her true feelings and ends her engagement with Cecil. Lastly, she marries George. I like this book because Lucy went against society and did what was right for her.
