Product Description:

Married to an older woman and enduring a life of poverty, Ethan Frome finds himself trapped in a loveless, depressing relationship. When a younger cousin of his wife arrives to help around the house, Ethan finds himself falling in love with her. When she returns his affections, they search for a way that they can be together. An ironic twist of fate ends this tale not quite so happily ever after. ~ Melissa

Publisher Description:

Perhaps the best-known and most popular of Edith Wharton's novels, Ethan Frome is widely considered her masterpiece. Set against a bleak New England background, the novel tells of Frome, his ailing wife Zeena and her companion Mattie Silver, superbly delineating the characters of each as they are drawn relentlessly into a deep-rooted domestic struggle.
Burdened by poverty and spiritually dulled by a loveless marriage to an older woman. Frome is emotionally stirred by the arrival of a youthful cousin who is employed as household help. Mattie's presence not only brightens a gloomy house but stirs long-dormant feelings in Ethan. Their growing love for one another, discovered by an embittered wife, presages an ending to this grim tale that is both shocking and savagely ironic.
