  • Details
Ruth Wilcox's deathbed wish forever changes relations between her well-heeled family and bourgeois Schlegel sisters, Margaret and Helen, when Ruth bequeaths her manor -- Howards End -- to Margaret. Ruth's husband, Henry, acting in his family's "best interest," burns the coda to her will. But as lonely Henry falls for Margaret, providence dictates that he pay for his duplicity.
