    i recommended this book to a lot of people

    The book Ethan Frome is a love story with a lot of drama. I really enjoyed this book, the end is the best part. The story took place out in the New England countryside. There are farms and fields were people had to grow fruit and vegetables to eat. People sometimes had to give up things that may be very important to them such as a person or an object that may help them in life. For example, it could be a person that you are in love with that lives with you on the farm or farm animals. So this story is about love and romance.
    This story takes place in Starkfield, Massachusetts. Ethan is one of the main characters lives on the farm with a wife Zenna. Zenna’s cousin Mattie comes to help with the housekeeping and Ethan and Mattie fall in love. However, Mattie also met other men such as Dennis Eady to socialize with. So who is Mattie going to fall in love with? Is it going to be Ethan who is married to her cousin Zenna or is it going to be this new character names Dennis. A lot can happen in nine chapters but I have to say that the ending may be a surprise to you.
    This story has a lot to do with family and new relationships and the book would be great for people that love their wife or husband. However, it will be enjoyed by people that sometimes have trouble with their wife or husband. But hopefully it will get better in time, just like this family did. So I hope you recommend this book because it is excellent for people that love their family and pray that there life will be better when you do have a wife or a husband.
