Abstract:

Born to wealth and privilege, Kate Croy's mother threw it all away to marry a penniless opium addict. After her mother's death, Kate is offered an opportunity to return to the opulent lifestyle her mother gave up-on one condition. Kate must renounce the man she loves: the witty, good-looking, but poor, Merton Densher. Reluctantly agreeing, Kate finds herself becoming friends with "the world's richest orphan," Millie Theale. When Kate learns that Millie is dying, she devises a plan of dizzying possibility for herself and Merton that should solve all their problems, but instead leads them down a path strewn with tragic, unexpected consequences.
