My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Another downer from Edith Wharton, but this one struck me as more interesting than Ethan Frome (probably an unpopular opinion, but…), it was less of a stretch into literary-ness and more character-based. The slow prose suited the slow spinsters. There was room to breath, even tho the story moved quite fast. Despite it’s ever-impending doom, I quite enjoyed the Bunner sisters, especially the religious conversion bit.
