Would recommend: Maybe

So, I love Edith Wharton, and I loved The Age of Innocence and Ethan Frome. This is a novel about Edith and her affair with William Morton Fullerton, and I had a hard time with it. I just struggle with fictional accounts about real people. Where's the line? It's like I need footnotes to clue me in to where the fiction begins and ends. Still, the book is well-written. It gets kind of racy for my taste, but it's entertaining enough.
