Passionate, headstrong, and fiercely independent, twenty-one-year-old Ann Veronica Stanley is determined to live her life to the fullest. When her autocratic father attempts to curb her academic ambitions and social experiences, she escapes her stodgy, conventional world and sets out alone to make a fresh start in London. There, enrolled as a student of biology, she discovers a flourishing unknown world of intellectuals, suffragettes, socialists and free love. But the true cost of her new freedom becomes clear only when she falls for the brilliant, charismatic—and married—academic, Capes. A sensation when it was first published in 1909 due to its groundbreaking treatment of female sexuality, Ann Veronica is a fascinating and optimistic look at one woman’s quest for personal liberation in a male-dominated society.

Author Bio: H. G. Wells

Author Bio: H. G. Wells

H. G. Wells (1866–1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900–1920) were more realistic and covered lower-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society.
