She inherits wealth from Touchett and, not long after, she finds herself attracted to Gilbert Osmond, who behind his façade of charm and refinement is spiteful, egoist, and unfaithful. Despite having all the ingredients to secure a great life and future, Isabel becomes a victim of her cruel destiny.
