Summary
This novel gives a glimpse into the life of Edith Wharton, weaving Edith's real letters and intimate diary entries throughout the book. When at the age of forty-five Edith falls in love with a dashing younger journalist, Morton Fullerton, she faces the disapproval of her closest friend: her governess turned literary secretary, a mothering, nurturing friend.--B.I.P
Summary
Reimagines the midlife world of Edith Wharton and the impact of her affair with a young journalist on her longtime friendship with disapproving literary secretary Anna Bahlmann, in a tale told against the vivid backdrops of Gilded Age Paris, the Wharton's elegant home in Lenox and Henry James's English manse.
