One of ten books I released at this OBCZ after having dinner across the street at The Oven to celebrate my parent's 45th anniversary last night.

I'm excited to read this book. I'm heading off in a month to Newport (to visit a friend) and New York City. The author lived in both these places! Perfect! I may even pass this on to my friend in RI.
This is a really good book, but I'm not sure I liked it. It was sad and I generally like happier books.

It's all about the upper-class of NYC and the gilded age. I have to say, I thought the back cover book blurb gave too much away. Just because it's a classic, the publishers always assume that we know the story! This is also shown in all of the "introductions" that are written for classics. They sum up the whole plot.

I finished up this book quickly, because I am visiting Newport, Rhode Island, where Edith Wharton wrote part of this book. My friend just moved to Newport, so I thought she might be interested in this book.


She was! Enjoy, chica!

Enjoyed it very much. I want to know what is the "word" that Lily and Selden wanted to say to each other? I found the book on the wall of the seawalk. I plan to leave it for another reader.
