Very good tale by EM Forster

Where Angels Fear to Tread - E.M. Forster

One of EM Forster's shorter novels and it's entertaining enough. This well-written novel is about a young widow living with her husband's family in middle-class England who takes herself off to Italy where she meets and weds a young Italian. She dies shortly after during childbirth. The novel deals mainly with the aftermath of this how English morals and society clash with Italian common sense with dramatic consequences for all the protagonists.
