The Penguin English Library Edition of Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton

'He seemed a part of the mute melancholy landscape, an incarnation of its frozen woe, with all that was warm and sentient in him fast bound below the surface'

Ethan Frome works his unproductive farm and struggles to maintain a bearable existence with his difficult, suspicious and hypochondriac wife, Zeena. But when Zeena's vivacious cousin enters their household as a 'hired girl', Ethan finds himself obsessed with her and with the possibilities for happiness she comes to represent. In one of American fiction's finest and most intense narratives, Edith Wharton moves this ill-starred trio towards their tragic destinies.

“Very Good”

I do like this book and I would definitely recommend it. The only slight issue I have is that it ends too fast and not much really happens. It's like when you're telling something to a friend and you start... More

“Bleak and Beautiful”

This short novel is Wharton's most loved work. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the harsh yet beautiful winter landscape. This is a sad story of lives unfulfilled but there is hope in this bleak tale.... More

“Mesmerising”

I am completely and utterly in love with Edith Wharton! This is the second of her books that I have read in as many weeks and I don't know what kept me from her for so long.
