Summary

"Where Angels Fear to Tread" is a novel by E.M. Forster published in 1905. 

The novel, Forster’s first, describes events in the life of Lilia, a young English widow who falls in love with an Italian man to the disapproval of her family. 

Experts on Forster’s work place "Where Angels Fear to Tread" in a category along with "A Room With a View", which is also set in Italy and features an English protagonist, and which explores similar themes of class differences and bourgeois obsessions with appearances. 
The novel was acclaimed and considered remarkable by critics who marvelled that it was the author’s first, though it was not ultimately the best-known or most successful of his works.

"Where Angels Fear to Tread" was made into a 1991 film starring Helena Bonham Carter and Rupert Graves.
