The PrinceA modern retelling of The Golden Bowl by Henry James for fans of Sally Rooney and Danielle Steel. Enter the privileged Upper East Side homes where life is easy, but no one can truly be at ease. Where expenses are trivial, and the status quo is not to be disturbed by the truth. Where the loyalties of the Woodford family and their friends are repeatedly tested. Frederico, the holder of a meaningless Italian royal title and an equally meaningless job, is ready to dedicate himself entirely to his new wife. Emily, the willfully ignorant only child of a wealthy widower, could only be happier if her father found someone to marry too. Henry, still mourning his beloved wife, is devoted to his daughter and intent on plans to turn the old family estate into a museum to revive a failing town. Christina, Emily’s gorgeous, enigmatic childhood friend, is nursing a secret wound from a past lover. And Jean, the curator knows everything, but wishes she didn’t. When these characters come together, everyone’s heart is at risk. In this compelling page-turner told from alternating perspectives, the Woodfords learn what and who they really cannot live without.
