Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Construction engineer Bartley Alexander is a troubled, middle-aged man torn between Winifred, his American wife — a cold woman with clearly defined standards — and Hilda Burgoyne — an alluring mistress in London who has helped him recapture his youth and sense of freedom. Alexander's relationship with Hilda gnaws away at his sense of propriety and honor and eventually proves disastrous. (He is with Hilda when a messenger, unable to find him, fails to warn him that a bridge he is constructing is about to collapse.) A fascinating study of a man's growing awareness of the breach in his integrity, this book is essential reading for fans of this great American novelist. Unabridged republication of a standard edition.

Synopsis:

Construction engineer Bartley Alexander is a troubled, middle-aged man torn between his cold American wife and an alluring mistress in London who has helped him recapture his youth and sense of freedom.
 

About the Author

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Willa Cather (1873-1947) spent her formative years in Nebraska, which was at that time frontier territory. Her exposure to the region's dramatic environment and intrinsic hardships — along with its diverse population of European-Americans, Native Americans, and immigrants — shaped and informed much of her fiction.
