George Darrow, Anna Leath’s first love, is finally coming from London to propose to her. However, he drifts to an affair with Sophy Viner, Anna’s daughter’s naïve and young governess. Sophy’s relationship with Darrow and Anna’s family can threaten his success. In this novel, as in many of Wharton’s other well known novels, we see the eternal love triangle. With her sly and lovely writing style, Wharton delivers to us in this wonderful novel a cast of unforgettable characters and many unforgettable scenes which we can vividly imagine. What would Darrow choose: success or love? Would Anna marry him despite his affair with Sophy?

  • A Bad Ending

    Edith Wharton wrote another beautiful story about a long ago time period. I really enjoyed the plot, the setting and the character development. I found it hard to put the book down even though I am on vacation. After reading through the whole book I was naturally disappointed with the strange ending. Did the author grow tired of the story? Did she die leaving the work incomplete? I felt somehow invested in the story and I felt cheated with the ridiculous ending. Honestly, I am not sure I can recommend this book due to the subpar ending. Strangely, I probably would have given this five stars, had the ending been even mediocre.
