Bafta award winning actress Jennifer Ehle reads this wonderful unabridged audiobook of one of Henry James’ funniest and most enjoyable novels.
The battle between a father and a daughter is usually portrayed in literature as a struggle between a headstrong but feisty girl and a tradition-bound lead weight of a father. Henry James of course had to do it somewhat differently. He tells a story of an intelligent man riding the turn of the tide in mid-nineteenth century New York, and watching what he sees as his numbingly dull and conventional daughter making the mistake of her life in her choice of husband.
The fight between these two delicious characters keeps the suspense carried right up until the last page before you learn how the contest will end.
