The Golden Bowl (Wordsworth Classics)
About the book: Henry James's last completed novel, The Golden Bowl, is the story of two flawed marriages. The lives and relationships of Maggie Verver and her widowed American millionaire father, Adam, are changed and challenged by the beautiful and charming Charlotte Stant, who is the former lover of Maggie's husband, the impoverished Italian, Prince Amerigo. The gilded crystal bowl, with its almost invisible flaw, is the vehicle which James uses to reveal past misdemeanors and make his characters face their own defects in this enduring story of sacrifice.
