Duration: 6 hours 5 minutes
Eugenia, an American expatriate brought up in Europe, arrives in rural New England with her charming brother Felix, hoping to find a wealthy second husband after the collapse of her marriage to a German prince.
Their exotic, sophisticated airs cause quite a stir with their affluent, God-fearing American cousins, the Wentworths-and provoke the disapproval of their uncle, suspicious of foreign influences. To Gertrude Wentworth, struggling against her somber puritan upbringing, the arrival of the handsome Felix is especially enchanting.
