Forster’s classic recounts the adventures of English tourists who meet in an Italian pensione and follows their intersecting lives when they return to England. While in Italy, Lucy Honeychurch falls in love with George Emerson, but when she returns to Edwardian England, her long-term friend, Cecil Vyse, proposes marriage. Juliet Stevenson reads this novel in soft, quietly enunciated tones. With a minimum of fuss and subtle differentiation of characters, Stevenson brings out the romance and tension of the story, as well as the society that Lucy inhabits. As Lucy struggles with appearances and the social mores of her time, she must decide whom she loves and how she will tell the other of her decision. Lucy's world comes to life through Stevenson's narration. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
