Love and Mr. Lewisham showcases H.G. Wells' deft writing outside the science-fiction genre. Mr.Lewisham is a young science student who leaves the country with ambitious dreams to live in London. His plans are thrown into turmoil, however, when he falls passionately in love with Ethel who along with her stepfather are involved in mystical charlatanism, beguiling the weak in exchange for monetary gain. This of course goes against Mr.Lewisham's ethical standards - will he be able to reconcile these differences?
