Thursday’s Special: Dressed to the nines

Sometimes a woman must make an extra effort.

That’s exactly what Maggie Verver did after having discovered a betrayal by her husband and her step mother.

Determined to save her marriage Maggie convinces her father to leave England and to return to the States with his young bride.

In the course of the novel (“The Golden Bowl” by Henry James) we see Maggie transform from a naive, impressionable daddy’s girl into a woman of strength and determination who has her priorities straight and is ready to fight for what’s hers.

Dressed to the nines and armed with tenacity and a desperate endeavor to keep her family together, for the first time Maggie is taking charge of her life.

Thursday’s Special: The Wings of Love

 

Kate Croy is a poor girl who wants to marry a poor boy. Her aunt wants her to marry a Lord. To get her way, Kate needs money. She meets a rich American orphan named Milly Theale, who has a fatal disease, and has come to Europe to live before she dies. Milly likes Kate’s poor boy, whose name is Merton Densher. Slowly, subtly, revealing her hand one card at a time, Kate unfolds a scheme in which Merton will marry Milly, Milly will die, and Merton will inherit her money and be able to marry Kate.

Do things go according to plan? Find out in Henry James’ classic The Wings of the Dove
