An American heiress newly arrived in Europe, Isabel Archer does not look to a man to furnish her with her destiny; instead she desires, with grace and courage, to find it herself. Two eligible suitors approach her and are refused. She then becomes utterly captivated by the languid charms of Gilbert Osmond. To him, she represents a superior prize worth at least seventy thousand pounds; through him, she faces a tragic choice.

    " This is one of the saddest books I have ever read. Henry James creates a heroine, in Isabel, who was his repost to Dorothea in Middlemarch. We get to know Isabel well and whilst we may not agree with what she does at the end of the novel, we understand. The scenes in Rome capture the gothic extremely well and the reader also feels a sense of suffocation. James, as ever, portrays the difference between the American and European characters well. The writing isn't always easy and if you don't like long, complicated sentences you probably won't like James but I would urge you to persevere. "

    " The writing is, of course, magnificent, but Warburton was the only character who interested me. "
