117 editions published between 1825 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it came to holy matrimony, writer H.G. Wells had a rather interesting personal history. He married his first cousin, soon left her for one of his students, and then had multiple affairs (and children) with important female thinkers and writers over the course of the rest of his lifetime. With that in mind, Wells brings a unique twist to this relatively straightforward take on Edwardian morals and mores in marriage

The secret places of the heart by H. G Wells( Book )

73 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

H.G. Wells is best remembered as a central figure in the development of the science fiction genre and as the creator of such works as The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The War of the Worlds.

Many critics regard The Secret Places of the Heart as a heavily autobiographical account of one of Wells' failed love affairs
