Book Description

True and Complete Edition: A wonderful story of questioning, disillusionment, and conversion. It tells the story of a prim English family's encounter with the foreign land of Italy. When attractive, impulsive English widow Lilia marries Gino, a dashing and highly unsuitable Italian 12 years her junior, her snobbish former in-laws make no attempt to hide their disapproval. But their expedition to face the uncouth foreigner takes an unexpected turn when they return to Italy under tragic circumstances intending to rescue Lilia and Gino's baby. Forster displays his finely honed talent for using the tragi-comic incident to comment on human existence. Where Angels Fear To Tread is much more than a comedy of manners - it demonstrates how a clash of cultural sensibilities can quickly turn from comedy to tragedy. This is a classic to come and read again and again. A superb book that you will remember long after you read it. Making your own discovery of Angels is part of the attraction.
