Summary
Two sisters have encounters with a wealthy family. The younger sister, Helen, is rejected by the son of the wealthy family. The older sister, Meg, becomes a good friend to Ruth Wilcox, the wealthy mother of the son who rejected her sister. Ruth's most cherished possession is their cottage at Howard's End. She wishes fervently that Meg could live there, as they are kindred spirits. Over the course of years, Meg marries into the wealthy family, but the family tries to keep Meg from taking possession of Howards End
