Eugenia, an American expatriate brought up in Europe, arrives in rural New England with her charming brother Felix, hoping to find a wealthy second husband after the collapse of her marriage to a German prince.

Their exotic, sophisticated airs cause quite a stir with their affluent, God-fearing American cousins, the Wentworths—and provoke the disapproval of their uncle, suspicious of foreign influences.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Bron’s reading is alert with nuance. She alternates between energy and ennui as character or occasion dictates, voicing the characters lightly, in keeping with James’s strong narrative control. In so doing, she mirrors perfectly both James’s tense and ambiguous world as well as his masterful control of that world.”

    " Pretty sleepy. Probably not the best place to start with Henry James. "

    " A bittersweet classic I read decades ago and simply don't remember much about. Mostly I enjoy James for his beautiful word play, and incisive portraits of the personalities of his people, although IMO Edith Wharton actually does that sort of thing even better. "
