Publisher's Summary

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 Wentworth's - and provoke the disapproval of their uncle, suspicious of foreign influences. To Gertrude Wentworth, struggling against her somber puritan upbringing, the arrival of the handsome Felix is especially enchanting.

wonderful novel, wonderful reader, poor recording

I'd probably be happy listening to Eleanor Bron read the dictionary aloud, so a chance to hear her read Henry James is a real treat. Sadly, however, the volume on this recording is very uneven. It varies so much and changes so often I have to keep a thumb on the volume control of my device. Very disappointing and distracting.

Not the best HJ but solid

This book was a bit hard to get into at first, but it ended up getting my attention. A short and sweet read, well narrated. Funny ending, not altogether satisfying, as is the author's way.
