Description

The disregard of a dying woman's bequest, a girl's attempt to help an impoverished clerk, and the marriage of an idealist and a materialist intersect at an estate called Howards End.

There, the lives of three families become entangled. The Wilcoxes, who own the estate, are a wealthy family who made their fortune in the American colonies. The Schlegel siblings - Margaret, Helen, and Tibby - are lively socialites whose spirited and active lifestyles are representative of the intellectual bourgeoisie. And the Basts are a young couple from a lower-class background who are struggling to survive. As chance brings them together, societal conventions come into question as does the ownership of Howards End.

Through the fate of the estate - as well as the lives of the families who are affiliated with it - Forster creates a brilliant parallel to the fate of English society itself.

Remarkable

I’ve always loved this book. I enjoyed listening to the audiobook. But the audio production needed improvement. You can hear the reader swallowing between sentences throughout.

Interesting book, charmingly told

The book reminded me of standing in the ocean, facing the waves. This book starts out light and easy — providing a beautiful introduction to all the characters of the story — before it moves into a rhythm of stormy(ish) and calm tides. The relationship between the three siblings, sisters Margaret, Helen, and brother Tibby, are interesting and unique. I loved the reader of this book. Her voice and tone precisely match that of the two primary characters, Margaret and Helen.
