From the Publisher
In The Portrait of a Lady (1881), spirited young Isabel Archer
travels from her home in Albany, New York, eager to discover what
life has to offer in Europe. Determined to shape her own destiny

in her pursuit of freedom.
Isabel's independence at first seems assured by a surprise legacy
from her uncle but, ironically, her wealth only serves to attract
the scheming Madame Merle and the cruelly possessive Gilbert
Osmond. The revelations that follow Isabel's marriage to Osmond are
devastating and she is forced to confront the conflict between
society's demand for propriety and her own fierce sense of
