One of Wells's realist novels, this follows a young, headstrong Ann Veronica as she tries to make her way in the world--both the world of science (she wants to continue studies over her father's wishes) and the world of love (to continue her studies, she gets help from a man who presumes too much, while she falls in love with her teacher).

Wells was friends and lovers with many women; and his portrait of Ann Veronica seems clear-eyed and unsentimental about women's circumscribed position at this time. Like all his sf books, this is carefully paced and clearly described.
