From Library Journal
James's 1901 novel is his only first-person narrative. The action is seen through the eyes of an unnamed narrator, a novelist attending a weekend party at an English estate. As the story progresses, the narrator begins to detect vast changes in his fellow guests as they begin taking on each other's personalities.

" Set in the backdrop of English countryside, The Sacred Fount is one of those novels by James, which arise curiosity. The narrator makes an effort to find out the truth about the love lives of his fellow-guests at a weekend party. Engrossing suspense!"
I HAVE said that I did many things on this wonderful day, but perhaps the simplest way to describe the rest of them is as a sustained attempt to avert that disaster. I succeeded, by vigilance, in preventing my late companion from carrying Mrs. Server off; I had no wish to see her studied--by anyone but myself at least.
