contrary to the title, the main character in this book is a man name winterborune. while in Switzerland he meets a young boy named randolph, who introduces winterbourne to his sister daisy miller. winterbourne falls in "love" with daisy and her flirtatious manner, which he uses around men. daisy loves to be around men, but even more so around american men. winterbourne goes to rome because his aunt lives there, and he also knows that daisy will be there. but instead of spending time with winterbourne, she now is spending more time with an italian man named Giovanelli. people in rome begin to speak of her manner, while winterbourne and his aunt try to warn her. daisy does not care bout what people say, and keeps going around with giovanelli around her arm. winterbourne begins to think they are engaged which is not the case. near the end of the book daisy becomes sick with malaria and giovanelli is rarely seen again. as she lay dying daisy wanted winterbourne to know that she was not engaged. this is a strange book and seems to have been written for females.
