Set in 19h century New York Society, This novel is filled with a delightful tapestry of details in setting, as well as a cast of unforgettable characters. A young lawyer in the center of this book, yearns to break out of the conventions of his well ordered life and we follow his thoughts and glances directed to his wife’s cousin who is estranged from her “foreign” and terrible husband. The story develops around their “love affair” consisting of stolen moments, fingers touching, and occasional eye contact. The reader is held in suspense to see if our young man fulfills his desire or if the pull of New York’s society keeps everything in check.
The delight is in the reading rather than a chase to get to the end.
