American in Europe

by roena on Nov 11, 2009

One of Henry James's best books, this is an intricately plotted account of a young, idealistic American woman caught in a web by devious Europeans. Isabel is the lady of the title, visiting Europe for the first time in the 1870's. Our book club read this together, and had a lively discussion. Not everyone liked the heroine, but all agreed that this is a beautifully written and fascinating novel.
