"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."

Well, it didn't resonate with me. I find Henry James to be 'hard work' reading - and this one was no exception. Still, another reader may enjoy it more, so off into the wild with it.....

Picked up from last night's meet-up. Will probably come to Thailand with me, and be read on the beach.

Pretty happy to have picked this one up today. Apparently one of the best James'books and one of the few I haven't yet read. Up MTBR it goes! Will bring it back to the meetup once read as there are other interested parties.
