DJ blurb on Wells' Ann Veronica:

This is one of the books that Wells wrote when he was still an unqualified radical, pure and simple, and it is instinct with the freshness and enthusiasm of a man who believes in a cause without any limiting sophistications. Ann Veronica is one of the most vividly drawn female characters, a New Woman, a thorough feminist, espousing the cause of women’s emancipation and fighting for the equal rights of the sexes. But, though a fighter in a cause, she is lovable as a woman, too, and the pure human-interest appeal of the book is in no way subordinated to the interest in the theme. Ann Veronica is an out and out love story and a gripping one.
