From the Publisher
The incomparably beautiful city of Florence and the peaceful backwaters of rural England at the turn of the century serve as the remarkable settings for this lavish BBC dramatization of E.M. Forster's classic social satire, complete with a distinguished cast and stirring music.
A Room With a View
Lucy Honeychurch is an innocent abroad -- a conventional middle-class English girl doing the Grand Tour of the European continent. But the "improving" effects of Europe's great art and architecture are soon overshadowed by a startling encounter with violent death and the distractions of an awakening passion.
Forced to return to her life in England, beset with prim Victorian moral values, Lucy becomes engaged to the arrogant Cecil, but soon finds herself forn between Victorian society's expectations of her and the stirrings of her own quickening heart...
