The most successful mainstream novel of H.G. Wells, now finally back in print.
Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul
Until he reached manhood, it was not clear to Kipps how he came to be under the care of an aunt and uncle, instead of having a father and mother like other little boys.
But the elusive memories of his phantom mother that plagued him began to fade away over time. His life’s memories begin to be filled with childhood friendship and love, until that too was taken away.
Now, after coming into an unsuspected inheritance, Kipps tries to adapt to a new social life, one that challenges him in a way he didn’t expect. With money and newfound love, one might think that Kipps would be on top of the world, but he soon finds out that he was better off without it . . .
Long unavailable to readers, Kipps is a classic rags-to-riches story that addresses the moral and emotional difficulties that come with wealth and a change of social station. It will make you think, have you laughing, and capture your heart.
