Winterbourne's pursuit of her is hampered by her own flirtatiousness, which is frowned upon by the other expatriates they meet in Switzerland and Italy. The novel coments on the contrast between American and European society that is common to James's work.

Great story! I love Henry James and Peter Marinker's performance is very good. Nice short novella.
Very well done.
"Great Short American-British Classic to Listen To"
I am a fan of British classic novels, and would highly recommend this one. A great and fun short novel to read and even better to listen to. Everything is as described and a twist at the end. I would read more of Henry James' novels and listen to Peter Marinker again.
