Twenty-one, passionate and headstrong, Ann Veronica Stanley is determined to live her own life. When her father forbids her from attending a fashionable Ball, she decides she has no choice but to leave her family home and make a fresh start in London. There, she finds a world of intellectuals, socialists, and suffragettes- a place where, as a student in Biology at Imperial College, she can be truly free. But when she meets the brilliant Capes, a married academic, and quickly falls in love, she soon finds that freedom comes at a price.

display_description H. G. Wells (1866-1946) received a degree from London University where he studied evolutionary science under Thomas Huxley. Wells was stricken with tuberculosis shortly after, and in his weakened condition took to writing. Scientific romance, later known as science fiction, is the genre Wells is most famous for, but he was a prolific writer in many other genres. "Ann Veronica" is a testament to Wells' diverse spectrum of interests, as politics and social issues were of great importance to him. The titular character, Ann Veronica, is the embodiment of the feminist ideals rising in importance around the time of the book's publication (1909). Ann Veronica combats the Edwardian English ideals as the male figures in the story can't understand her desire to stray from the dormant, submissive social norms of women.
