Publisher's Summary

When Lilia, an English widow, marries a penniless Italian while on vacation, her dead husband's relatives are not amused. That the marriage should fail and Lilia die tragically are to be expected. But that she should have a baby - and that the baby should be raised Italian, of all things - are matters requiring immediate correction. E.M. Forster's first novel addresses cultural collisions and English middle-class sterility, themes that underlie many of his works, including A Room with a View and A Passage to India.

"Ironic and malevolent. Comfortable notions of vice and virtue collapse underfoot and the best intentions go mortally awry." (Spectator)

    "Worst Narration Possible"

    I couldn't listen to this book - the narrator has an awful staccato, stop-start delivery, almost like an automated voice telling you your bank balance. Waste of my money.

    "Back in school"

    17 years old I tried to read this novel for my english-lessons. I didn't succeed, but now I love it. Forster is so satirical and he knows Italy. It's a slow-pacing novel and not written for teenagers!

    "Very Bad Audio"

    To IPod users...beware that this title is only available in the lower formats. I found the audio to be absolutely terrible. It was very scratcty, irratating, and distracting.

    The story is good, but I didn't enjoy it because of the audio. Although I'm a fan of Forster, I don't recommend this audiobook.

    Listen to "A Passage to India" instead. Great sound and an exceptional narrator. Also, it's Forster's greatest work.
