Washington Square

Author(s): Henry James

Fiction

When timid and plain Catherine Sloper acquires a dashing and determined suitor, her father, convinced that the young man is nothing more than a fortune-hunter, decides to put a stop to their romance. This novel interweaves the public and private faces of nineteenth-century New York society; it is also a moving study of innocence destroyed.
