Overview

Herbert George (H.G.) Wells was an English author most famous for writing science fiction novels. Wells was born to a middle class family in Bromley which is in the county of Kent. A bad accident in Well’s youth left him bedridden with a broken leg. It was during this tough time that Wells began to read books which his father borrowed from the local library and would develop the desire to write.

Wells’ childhood was often difficult as he was forced to become an apprentice for a draper to help his family which was struggling financially. Wells then became a teacher and after living with his aunt he fell in love with his cousin and married her in 1891, but the couple separated after he fell for one of his students in 1894. Wells married the student, Amy Catherine Robbins, but was known to have many affairs which Amy accepted. Wells most famous science fiction novels include The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, and The Invisible Man but he also wrote on topics such as history, politics, and English society.

I love this book from H.G. Wells. It is a beautiful story of a girl struggling to find what she needs to do. It mixes the troubles of the times and romance into a lovely ball of challenges for Vee. I give Ann Veronica five stars!

A lovely book by Wells, different from his sci-fi books, but equally as good.
