From the back:

“Whatever life you lead you must put your soul in it.”

Free-spirited American Isabel Archer, a young woman who grew up haphazardly on books and adventures under the care of her widowed father, finds herself embracing her destiny when she travels to Europe after her father dies. Her aunt and uncle welcome her bright spirit to Gardencourt, their beautiful English estate, where she effortlessly assimilates to a new lifestyle.

When proposals come from all sides, Isabella maintains that marriage would hinder her treasured independence – she is desperate to make something wonderful of her life, without the crutch of the wealth of a man. But when she comes into an extensive inheritance of her own, her newly colored freedom and the introduction of the enigmatic Gilbert Osmond chip away at that old resolve.

The Portrait of a Lady is a forceful clash between Old World ideals and New World ideals. James profoundly explores themes of personal freedom, responsibility, and betrayal in this tour de force that leaves the reader breathless. This edition has been lovingly brought to life with original illustrations by Haleigh DeRocher.
