Edith Wharton's superb and evocative prose, excellent characterisation, and generally insightful writing shine through in this rather short novel focusing on a young woman's relationship with her guardian and a young man visiting the area. Not her finest (which in my view is "The House of Mirth"), but still thoroughly deserving of a 5-star rating. Although the story is itself engaging, recommend reading it just to appreciate Wharton's skill as a writer.
