Where Angels Fear to Tread


Hot-headed Lilia is seen as nothing but a vulgar source of embarrassment to her late husband's family, so her decision to embark on a year abroad in Tuscany is welcomed by her uptight and snobbish mother-in-law. Yet Lilia doesn't stay away from scandal long; her announcement that she is to marry the charismatic but ill-bred Gino is met with horror by the rest of the family. Their union ends in tragedy and violence as her English relatives confront their Italian counterparts, as well as their own cultural values, amidst the beauty of the Tuscan countryside.

A wonderful read...

by LincB on Oct 11, 2009

This was the first book I've read by EM Forster. I found it a bit difficult to get into at the beginning, in part because the language was different, and also because it had a slow start; but once a few pages in, it flowed unlike any book I've ever read before. I recently returned from a trip to Tuscany, and I could clearly see the scenes he was depicting, and it took me back to that little village I, myself, was in only a few months ago. The characters seemed a bit hollow to begin with, but, as the story went on, their intricacies emerged and they grew into people that I couldn't help but empathize with. My heart broke with theirs and sang, too, with their joy. A very enjoyable read, I would recommend this book to anyone.
