Daisy Miller: A poignant drama of emotional conflict involving a young American girl among Europe's fast international set, long on of James' most popular works.
This is a gothic horror novel, actually a story within a story, about a young governess who is hired to care for two children. The governess encounters two ghosts about the estate and associates the ghosts with each of the children. There are some creepy moments, but I wouldn't call this book "scary" per se. I found the conclusion to be anti-climactic and wondering huh? There were parts of this story that were pretty wordy and went on endlessly, but the ending just left me wanting more and leaving me hanging. I had to read the SparkNotes to make sure that I had read the ending correctly.
