Ann Veronica - A Modern Love story - PDF by H. G. Wells

Ann Veronica by H. G. Wells

Ann Veronica

Ann Veronica is the youngest of five children and the only one left at home. 

Finding a life of "calls, tennis, selected novels, walks and dusting" to be stifling, she has persuaded her father to let her attend college, although only the Tredgold Women's College, not the more prestigious "mixed" college that she wants to attend. 

Being one of the "New Woman" novels, I didn't know quite what to expect. This is the best, most realistic one I've read thus far. Vee's spunk is admirable and Wells took on the subject with a decent blend of traditional and non-traditional behaviour. The ending was very appropriate for me at this time in my life. It wasn't edgy and yet it wasn't sentimental. I would read this one again.
