I enjoyed this short novel. It is definitely a story where "fools rush in," but it is also a meditation on why people make the choices they do and how the relationships within a family dictate some of those choices. The story is about a young widow, but the focus is on four people who are compelled to rush in and "fix" the mistakes they think she has made. The consequences are tragic.
This was Forster's first novel and there are definitely themes and ideas here that are expanded on in A Room with a View (published 3 years later).
“You told me once that we shall be judged by our intentions, not by our accomplishments. I thought it a grand remark. But we must intend to accomplish—not sit intending on a chair.”“The advance of regret can be so gradual that it is impossible to say "yesterday I was happy, today I am not.”
