When Isabel Archer, a beautiful, spirited American, is brought to Europe by her wealthy Aunt Touchett, it is expected that she will soon marry. But Isabel, resolved to determine her own fate, does not hesitate to turn down two eligible suitors. She then finds herself irresistibly drawn to Gilbert Osmond, who, beneath his veneer of charm and cultivation, is cruelty itself. A story of intense poignancy, Isabel's tale of love and betrayal still resonates with modern audiences. Download and start listening now!

    " I really don't understand why this book is a classic. I'd love to hear from readers who related to this book. "

    " This is not a frolic through the social norms and follies of nineteenth century England, a la Jane Austen. This is a tome, a beast of a book following five years in the life of a young American woman named Isabel Archer as she moves to Europe with an aunt and discovers that seeing all of life can be an enlightening, yet painful, process. Dense, masterfully written, the book keeps you engaged even when the situation is not the one you (or Isabel or her friends, family, or suitors) had imagined. "

    " I really cannot understand the hype - I found that this book took a very long time to go nowhere! "

    " Classic James. Brilliant. Subtle, psychological, with such graceful writing. "
