Howards End - Mary Gordon, E.M. Forster

Reading in preparation for the mini-series.

 

I remember seeing the movie years ago but don't remember too many details. I never read the book.

 

The beginning had me hooked.  It opens with Margaret receiving a letter from her sister saying she is in love. Margaret wants to run to her sister to find out what is going on being they don't know the family or the young man that well but, alas, their brother is sick. So their Aunt offers to go,  offering to make inquiries and well... meddle. She says she isn't. But she reads like she will.  Margaret puts the Aunt on a train after making her promise to behave and then is handed this telegram from her sister:

 

"All over.  Wish I had never written. Tell no one."

 

And I thought, "Nononononoooooooooooooooooo!!!"  But the Aunt is gone.
