Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

American, Daisy Miller, visits Europe with her mother and finds that her freshness and innocence are misinterpreted as immodesty and forwardness. This brings her into conflict with the differences in the two cultural traditions, inviting shock and disaster.

This was a good quick read about an American woman traveling abroad and the way she acts with those she meets.
