Reading this for a class, I at first found the story a bit boring. As it developed, though, I began to really enjoy the author's writing style. He is Henry James, after all. Modern readers will find little excitement and not much going on, but for a simple novella it was a wonderful piece that briefly explores the difference between American and European courtship of that era.
