Book Club reads “Ethan Frome”
The December read for the book club is “Ethan Frome” by Edith Wharton.
With this intensely moving short novel, Edith Wharton sets out to ‘draw life as it really was’ in the lonely villages and desolate farms of the harsh New England mountains. Through the eyes of a visitor from the city, trapped for a winter in snowbound Starkfield, readers glimpse the hidden histories of this austere and beautiful land. Piecing together the story of monosyllabic Ethan Frome, his grim wife, Zeena, and Mattie Silver, her charming cousin, Wharton explores psychological deadlock, frustration, longing, resentment and passion.
