Eugenia, an expatriated American, is the morganatic wife of a German prince, who is about to reject her in favor of a state marriage. With her artist brother Felix Young she travels to Boston to visit relatives she has never before seen, in hopes of making a wealthy marriage. The men of Boston soon realize her deceitfulness, and she returns to Europe, feeling that her fortune-hunting scheme is impractical in unsusceptible America.
Its wit, gaiety, and what Rebecca West calls its "clear sunlit charm" have made this masterly short novel the most popular of James's novels.

Henry James (1843-1916), son of Henry James Sr. and brother of the philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James, was an American-born author and literary critic of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He spent much of his life in Europe and became a British subject shortly before his death. He is primarily known for novels, novellas and short stories based on themes of consciousness and morality.From AudioFile:
Eugenia, an expatriated American whose marriage to a German prince has come undone, and her charming brother, Felix, are visiting relatives in the countryside near Boston. Their intent is to arrange a wealthy second marriage for Eugenia. O'Malley gives Henry James's classic a smooth, well-paced reading. develop their personalities and express their emotions. Most import-antly, all the satire of James's nineteenth-century study of the contrast in manners and morals between the wealthy of Europe and those of America comes across in O'Malley's performance.
