'You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you.'

When Lucy visits Italy with her prim and proper cousin Charlotte, she is on the verge of an experience that will throw her neatly ordered life off balance. Back in England, she finds that her relationships with her family, with the unconventional Emersons and with her supercilious fiance pull her between the social and sexual properties od her upbringing anf the and the spontaneous promptings of her heart.

I picked this up today, I think I will ray it.

Safely arrived, thank you!

An old favourite of mine...

"One doesn't come to Italy for niceness," was the retort; "one comes for life."

Lovely, and I will pass on to cat207 soon...

Really liked this book. A light hearted read that was an unusual find amongst the 53 - 1001 books that I have now completed.

Thanks for hosting this ray, cat 207! I will pass it on to angela861 the next time I see her!

Journal Entry 10 by angela861 from Chicago, Illinois USA on Monday, February 04, 2008
I received this while on vacation w/ ChiBoiler. I have 2 other rings/rays in front of this but have no fear... I'm a fast reader!

Journal Entry 11 by angela861 from Chicago, Illinois USA on Sunday, February 10, 2008
I really enjoyed this book. It was light and a fast read. It was such a nice surprise. I think I'll rent the movie.

I've just realized that I'm the last person on the list. I have offered to a fellow BC member who is working her way through the 1001 Books list. If she has read it, I will offer it as a bookray.

Thanks to cat207 for sharing!

Got this in the mail over the weekend! Can't wait to read it. Thanks angela861!

Journal Entry 15 by VividReader from Portland, Oregon USA on Friday, February 29, 2008
I finished this book the day before yesterday. I enjoyed it. I thought it was interesting how the entire book was dialogue, but you still can tell exactly what is going on. It's a light, easy read.

PMed jinnayah on the 25th for her address, waiting to hear back from her so I can send the book on its way!

Journal Entry 16 by VividReader from Portland, Oregon USA on Friday, March 14, 2008
On its way to Jinnayah via Media Mail!

Journal Entry 17 by jinnayah from Ann Arbor, Michigan USA on Saturday, March 15, 2008
Arrived today through the mail. I see the prior recipient was also in Boston -- convenient! Looking forward to it.

Journal Entry 18 by jinnayah from Ann Arbor, Michigan USA on Thursday, April 10, 2008
Oh, what a darling book! I loved it. I am proud to say the last scene reminds me of me and my husband :-)

I loved the appendix, as well. That Forster could so easily imagine where his characters were in his society! It shows how well he situated them initially.

Will PM kiyoitsukikage and send the book on. Apologies for the falling-out section.

Journal Entry 19 by kiyoitsukikage from Brixton, Greater London United Kingdom on Friday, April 18, 2008
It's here, thanks!

Journal Entry 20 by kiyoitsukikage from Brixton, Greater London United Kingdom on Thursday, June 12, 2008
I tried, but I really couldn't bring myself to continue reading this book, after about 40 pages I gave up. I could barely discern the characters and I had no idea what was going on o__O Clearly not for me. ;) PMed the next person.

I think that's not my kind of book.
I asked the next participant for the address and when it arrives I will send the book to her.
Anyway, many thanks for giving me the oppertunity to try it.

Journal Entry 23 by wingBluemchenblattwing from Paris, Ile-de-France France on Wednesday, September 17, 2008
Hello everyone, the book arrived here in Paris yesterday! I've two other rings here, we'll see how fast it goes, but since it doesn't seem there're other readers after me for the time being, I won't stress too much, if that's all right with you.

Journal Entry 24 by wingBluemchenblattwing from Paris, Ile-de-France France on Monday, April 12, 2010
Even while I have been dreading the book would fall completely apart when reading it, I forced myself to do so. It's not in great shape, but I managed to not make it any worse.
When it comes to the content, I've rather mixed feelings. While the story's outline is nice, I haven't appreciated the description of the characters and especially the sudden changes in some of them. It would be as if someone has entirely replaced a character for another and not as if they had changed. As much as the story could have been nice, this aspect just wasn't convincing at all.

I had listened to the audio-book some time ago but enjoyed the actual book better. I am actually glad that I am not a woman of the 19th century.
