This apparently light-hearted novel is written in the tradition on of social comedy started by Jane Austen. The central theme lies in the gradual awakening of Lucy Honeychurch and her eventual liberation from the constraints of upper-middle class society, its hypocrisy and obsession for respectability – a liberation in which love and honesty, in the end, triumph over social conventions.
