The plot of the novel is based upon a true story told to James by his close friend, British actress Fanny Kemble.

Enjoyable. Thought provoking. Frustrating.
So this has a good story but it seems lacking. The movie with Olivia DeHavilland, Ralph Richard, Montgomery Clift and Miriam Hopkins had a really wonderful twist in it. Whoever made the script for that movie , and put the twists and turns in, told a complete story. This just seems unfinished.
The original Heiress
Is is the book the Olivia Dehavilland movie "the Heiress" was based on. That is my all time favorite female empowerment movie.
I feel the book has a few flaws, like when she and her father go to Europe, they were supposed to be away for six months, but stay an entire year. What penniless man can wait that long?
I highly recommend this timeless classic.
