Why did I love this book?
Howard’s End made me miss my train stop – it’s so brilliantly plotted – but what makes me love it is how Forster forgives his characters’ many mistakes. Even stuffy Mr. Wilcox gets forgiven.
As I inhabited each of the characters in turn, I felt able to forgive my younger self. And I was so happy that the sisters did finally inherit Howard’s End, the magical house of the title.
