Wow!! Wouldn't have imagined that a risque topic would be part of this period time piece. Truly, if I hadn't seen the movie with Liam Neeson, I don't think I would have read this American classic but I sure am glad now that I did. Wharton did a tremendous job comparing the dreary existence of Zeena with the light and playfulness of Mattie. It is a very easy read and definitely gets the checkmark for American literature!!

This novel is so limited in scope that it's better described as a short story that overstays its welcome. There's not enough passion to make it a tragedy. Oh, the color of the cover is grey... Accurate.
