Jonathan Epstein does an outstanding job narrating James's novella about an American woman trying to earn a place in English society. Epstein's rich, soft tone depicts the quality of the story's well-mannered gentleman as well as the feminine wit of its heroine. Tension is created when the truth of the American woman's past is revealed to her new suitor and his family. Epstein capably expresses the emotional struggle that the gentleman undergoes as he decides whether or not he should betray the woman. With light piano music interspersed between chapters, this audiobook will give the listener a glimpse of the mores of late-nineteenth-century society.
