The Golden Bowl

640 pages12 hours


When Maggie Verver gets married, she worries that her widowed father—with whom she has always been close—is going to be lonely, so encourages him to marry her friend Charlotte. What father and daughter do not know is that Charlotte and Maggie’s new husband, Prince Amerigo, have a past relationship that is soon rekindled, creating an intricate web of secrets that threaten to tear the marriages apart.

With a focus on the consciousness of the four central characters, The Golden Bowl is an examination of relationships—familial and romantic—that explores adultery, jealousy, and the complexities of marriage.
