Ann Veronica is a novel by H.G. Wells first published in 1909. The book deals with political issues of the time, concentrating specifically on feminism. It created a sensation when published, due both to the feminist sensibilities of the heroine, and to the similarity of her name to that of Amber Reeve, a woman with whom Wells was rumored to be having an affair.Excerpted from Ann Veronica on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.. The First American Edition of the Book by Harper & Brothers is presented here.
