For Milly Theale, who seems to have the world before her and at her feet, is fatally ill.

But Merton and Kate are secretly engaged, and come to see in this angel with a thumping bank account as a solution to their own problems. For the remarkable Kate, scheming, passionate, poetic, also wants to live...
