Description
Beautiful, witty, and wealthy, Isabel Archer and her eccentric aunt leave America for Europe in hopes of finding Isabel a husband, in this novel by the author of Washington Square and The Turn of the Screw. Young Isabel turns out to be strong-minded and spirited, turning down the two most eligible suitors, only to fall for Gilbert Osmond, whose polished manners hide his boundless cruelty. As she inches toward marriage Isabel sees that her independence is starting to slip away.

"[Henry] James’s formidable powers of observation, his stance as a kind of bachelor recorder of human doings in which he is not involved, make him a first-class documentarian, joining him to that great body of storytellers who amass what formal history cannot."—Hortense Calisher
