Following the death of her father, Isabel Archer leaves the comforts of Albany, New York, to stay with her aunt Lydia Touchett at her London estate. There she meets Lydia's rich husband, David; her cousin, Ralph; and the Touchetts' proud neighbor, Lord Warburton. Soon, too, come marriage proposals from Lord Warburton and Caspar Goodwood, the son of a wealthy mill owner. Although Isabel declines both offers, she eventually gives her hand to Gilbert Osmond, an American expat in Florence.

"Portrait of a Lady"
struggled to finish it. the narrator was often monotone and his interpretation of the Ladies voices was irritating.
"Far too lengthy"
A good production of a rather too long novel. Beautifully written, but James gives the impression that he liked the sound of his own voice! Abridged version would suit me better.
