really liked it

This is an historical novel covering 5 years of the life of novelist Henry James. He was an intensely private writer and it is a lovely, moving account of his struggles with his writing, his acceptance by the people and his love for the people in his life.

This book was short listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2004. It is not a fast read, but one that should be savored.
