The plot centers around a Europeanized American man named Winterbourne, who meets a nouveau riche American woman going by the name Daisy Miller. A short novel, James wields the sword of fiction to craft a "study" of the roles of men and women, social relationships, cultural intersection, the allure of money, foolishness and wisdom, the responsibilities of parents, and the impact of one's life upon others.

I guess this is a classic, and although it had its moments, I was not completely sold on it. The story is an old romantic one, and just did not have the substance to be something great in my mind.
