About this item

An intricate creation you'll happily lose yourself in.” —People“Staggeringly brilliant . . . [and] extraordinary. You’ll start The Maze of Windermere with bewilderment, but you’ll close it in awe.” —The Washington Post“Pitch perfect . . . The different strands of the narrative are skillfully braided.” —New York Times Book ReviewFive eras and a spellbinding cast of characters intersect in Newport, R.I., weaving a tapestry of ambition and desire, and charting a voyage into the maze of the human heart from past to present.A reckless wager between a tennis pro with a fading career and a drunken party guest—the stakes are an antique motorcycle and an heiress’s diamond necklace—launches an odyssey that braids together three centuries of love and ambition, aspiration and adversity. A witty and urbane bachelor of the Gilded Age embarks on a high-risk scheme to marry into a fortune;  the  young writer Henry James, soon to make his mark on the world, turns himself to his craft with harrowing social consequences; an aristocratic British officer during the American Revolution carries on a courtship that leads to murder; and, in Newport’s earliest days, a tragically orphaned Quaker girl imagines a way forward for herself and the slave girl she has inherited.   In The Maze at Windermere Gregory Blake Smith weaves these intersecting worlds into a brilliant tapestry, charting a voyage across the ages into the maze of the human heart.
