The protagonist's complexity is noticeable from the beginning while the story itself is not just captivating but piously ingraining in its own right. Its vastness of cultural allusions, the shrewdness of its initiating construction and cleverness of assembly is a hallmark of master storytelling. Isabel is free-spirited and concerned about her freedom and driven by the fear of losing it. She is in Europe courtesy of aunt Touchett and her path to marriage is almost guaranteed. However, the inebriating Continent proves to be an intoxicated realm from Paris, Florence to Rome where her doting self-sufficiency misapprehensions come into question while ostensible associates and superficial friends craft a web of intrigues that will forever change her.
