Publisher Comments:

Set against the bleak winter landscape of New England, Ethan Frome is the story of a poor farmer, lonely and downtrodden, his wife Zeena, and her cousin, the enchanting Mattie Silver. In the playing out of this short novel's powerful and engrossing drama, Edith Wharton constructed her least characteristic and most celebrated book. In her Introduction, the distinguished critic Elaine Showalter discusses the background to the novel's composition and the reasons for its enduring success.

Sad tale of a man's life filled with tragedy. After a life of caring for a sick father then mother, Frome marries his wife Zeena out of gratitude for helping care for his mother. Wife turns into a hypochondriac who needs to be cared for by a relative Mattie. Frome finds himself being drawn to Mattie and when his wife states that Mattie must leave to be replaced by a girl who is better at taking care of a person, Frome plans to leave with Mattie but out of obligation decides to stay.On the way to taking Mattie to the train station Frome and Mattie confess their love and realize that both can't bare to be parted. They decides to end the problem by sledding into a big elm tree. Tale ends with Frome having limp, Mattie a bitter invalid being taken care of by Frome's wife. A sad tale of new love just realized that turns into regret and burden.
