Nick Lansing and Susy Branch are young, attractive, but impoverished New Yorkers. They are in love and decide to marry, but they realise their chances of happiness are slim without the wealth and status that their more privileged friends take for granted. Nick and Susy agree to separate whenever either encounters a more eligible proposition. However, as they honeymoon in friends' lavish houses, from a villa on Lake Como to a Venetian palace, jealous passions and troubled consciences cause the idyll to crumble. In this beautiful novel, Edith Wharton perceptively describes the seductions and temptations of high society with all her trademark wit and irony.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Wharton's unjustly neglected novel... a luscious, worldly, sensuous read, surely the equal of its most obvious offspring - Tender is the Night." - Boyd Tonkin, Independent


"This dark, beautifully-written and perceptive novel still feels fresh today." - The Lady
