it was ok
Read in November, 2008

Well.....I read this book for a book club. It was a long, dull, and tedious task to finish this for me. I kept hoping that some type of a PLOT would emerge and whisk me away to no avail. It is never a good thing when you have checked how many pages you have left to read after chapter 2....and this book is not short! My edition had 374 pages...if you are counting.

To be fair...it seemed in a similar vein to Ethan Frome. It captures the dialogue and thinking of a particular time well. If you like Edith Wharton you might enjoy this book. If you have not enjoyed her work in the past, I would pass on this particular work.
