Ethan Frome (Kobo eBook)
Retold for Learners of English by Susan Kingsley
Life is always hard for the poor, in any place and at any time. Ethan Frome is a farmer in Massachusetts. He works long hours every day, but his farm makes very little money. His wife, Zeena, is a thin, grey woman, always complaining, and only interested in her own ill health.
Then Mattie Silver, a young cousin, comes to live with the Fromes, to help Zeena and do the housework. Her bright smile and laughing voice bring light and hope into the Fromes house and into Ethans lonely life.
But poverty is a prison from which few people escape . . .
