Howards End by E. M Forster( )

"Set in Edwardian England, Howards End is the portrait of a lost era ... a deceptively golden and frenetic time before the First World War would change values and lifestyles forever. To illuminate these changing times, Forster throws together three vastly dissimilar classes of people: the Schlegels -- educated, compassionate and independently wealthy; the Wilcoxes -- nouveau riche Empire builders; and Leonard Bast, an ambitious but struggling bank clerk. As these three groups move in and out of each other's worlds, disasters and discoveries ensue."--Container
