Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Focussing on the troubled history of an upper-class American family, Edith Wharton presents an inspired critique of earlier twentieth-century New York society that has much to say to today's proponents of the nature versus nurture debate.

As her marriage to an eminent and wealthy bachelor approaches, Kate Orme should feel nothing but bliss. Yet when she learns of Denis' guilty secret she becomes painfully aware of her fiancé's flawed morality. Determining that no child of hers should inherit such character traits, she does everything in her power to instil the highest moral code into their son. Yet when Dick is faced with a moral choice of his own, she can only watch to see if history will repeat itself.
