"The novel...was most enthusiastically admired by Henry James, and one can see
why, for it is most Jamesian...It marks the peak of her most brilliant period of creativity...And for us
it is a chance to see what can be achieved in the pursuit of moral truths."--Anita Brookner

A challenge to the moral climate of the day, The Reef follows the fancies of George Darrow,
a young diplomat en route from London to France, intent on proposing to the widowed Anna Leath.
Unsettled by Anna's reticence, Darrow drifts into an affair with Sophy Viner, a charmingly naive and
impecunious young woman whose relations with Darrow and Anna's family threaten his prospects for
success.

The affair becomes the reef on which four lives are in danger of foundering: two of them innocent, and
two of whom are burdened with experience and tinged with desperation. This is a story of the drastic
effects of a casual sexual betrayal and a clear-eyed assessment of the possibilities and limitations
of human love.
