I've loved the other Edith Wharton Books I've read but this one didn't work for me at all. Her books are usually so suspenseful but this one I thought was just dull. Not the reader's fault, but I couldn't wait for it to end and when it did it was very unsatisfying.

Any additional comments?
I love Edith Wharton and found this early short novel appealing in much the same way as The Age of Innocence, though set in a very small New England village and about very different characters. Wonderful descriptions of setting and psychologically realistic and satisfying.
