    When Isabel Archer, a beautiful, spirited American, is brought to Europe by her wealthy Aunt Touchett, it is expected that she will soon marry. But Isabel, resolved to determine her own fate, does not hesitate to turn down two eligible suitors. She then finds herself irresistibly drawn to Gilbert Osmond, who, beneath his veneer of charm and cultivation, is cruelty itself. A story of intense poignancy, Isabel's tale of love and betrayal still resonates with modern audiences.

    Overall

    I gave up listening to this recording about a third of the way through because the narration is very bad. The narrator's voice has an elderly rasp to it that makes every character sound elderly. She does have an energetic delivery, but she uses the same inflection for almost every sentence. Given the obviously inferior quality of the recording, it is particularly annoying that Audible chose to break the recording into two pieces so that they could charge more from it. Very disappointing.
