In the bleak backwoods of New England, 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 Mattie enters their house as a hired girl, Ethan finds himself obsessed with her and with the possibilities for happiness she come to represent. In one of American fictions finest and most intense narratives, Edith Wharton moves this ill-starved trio toward their tragic destinies. The classic novel of despair, forbidden emotion, and sexual undercurrents Ethan Frome has become perhaps her most enduring and widely read book.
