Description

Eugenia, a baroness divorced from a German prince, and her bohemian brother, Felix, are coming back to America. Raised and cultured in Europe, they are returning destitute to New England to seek out their rich and innocent cousins. Eugenia wins the attentions of Robert Acton, the most appropriate suitor in the area, while also seducing her younger cousin, Clifford. But her foreign gentility and audacity confuse the puritanical customs of the New World. On the other hand, Felix's luxurious romantic ways find acceptance with the American women. But misunderstandings of a different kind complicate his plans. In a bungle of culture clash and love triangles, the Europeans hang their fortunes upon their ability to adapt. Where their scheming leads them is the last place they expect.

Professional reviews

"In Henry James's typical style, the characters of The Europeans, none of whom has much substance, and the details of their surroundings, which are the picture of bland, are exhaustively examined, while the plot, which could be handled in a single paragraph, receives about that much consideration. Lloyd James presents the story with exactly the same air of self-satisfied cleverness imparted by the text. His dramatic pauses, where the author can't get over his own powers of perception, parade the wit and wisdom of the wealthy about as accurately as they deserve. Lloyd James differentiates little among the characters, save for the one European cousin who appears to have a slight amount of depth. Dialogue from the others is presented in the same narrative style as the rest of the text. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
