Somehow Good

Book cover
By: (1839-1917)

Somehow Good by William Frend De Morgan is a captivating novel that takes readers on a journey through love, forgiveness, and redemption. The story follows the life of Sidney Heron, a successful businessman who struggles to come to terms with his past mistakes and find true happiness.

De Morgan does an excellent job of developing complex and relatable characters, particularly Sidney, who undergoes a profound transformation throughout the novel. The themes of love and forgiveness are beautifully woven into the narrative, giving readers a sense of hope and inspiration.

The writing style is elegant and engaging, with vivid descriptions that bring the setting to life. De Morgan’s attention to detail and rich character development make Somehow Good a truly immersive reading experience.

Overall, Somehow Good is a touching and thought-provoking novel that will resonate with readers long after they finish the last page. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a heartfelt and poignant story.

Book Description:
A mysterious man arrives in London and, in a freak accident, gets electrocuted on an underground train and loses his memory. A young lady called Sally Nightingale feels responsible, and brings him home to her mother. But in a strange twist of fate it transpires that her mother is the man's ex wife, whom he left twenty years earlier in unhappy circumstances. The old attraction is there, but what will happen if and when his memory returns? A highly melodramatic plot, but with a deft comic touch, a host of vibrant characters, and a large dash of romance.

De Morgan is best known as a designer. One of the pioneers of the arts and crafts movement, he was a lifelong friend of William Morris and designed tiles and ceramics for Morris & Co for many years. But during his lifetime he also found considerable success as a writer. Over a century later his novels provide the reader with a picture - as intricately designed and lavishly colourful as his ceramics - of an England which, in a few short years after their publication, was to be changed forever by the First World War. With a style that at times is reminiscent of Thackeray or Dickens, De Morgan is a writer with a distinctive voice, wry wit, and - if 'Somehow Good' is any indicator - a truly sentimental heart.
