Read full description of the books:



When trying to find something about this play that takes place in England c.1880, I came upon a certain reference to the name of the story:
A Hobson's choice is a free choice in which only one thing is offered. Because a person may refuse to accept what is offered, the two options are taking it or taking nothing. In other words, one may "take it or leave it." How clever is it that the author of the play named his character Henry Hobson and the play refers to that. I could not find out when the play was first written but it appears the first performance was in 1916. The story revolves around a shop owner, shoes or boot-maker, who has three daughters, two pretty and one clever and according to wikipedia resembles Cinderella or King Lear...indeed it does. I thought it was a witty play and really enjoyed reading it. Since it was filmed, I just might have to see if I can locate a visual.
