Edith Wharton

Ethan Frome

A classic of American Literature and a powerful story taking place against the cold, gray, bleakness of a New England winter. Ethan Frome is trying to run a farm while also tending to his frigid, demanding and ungrateful wife Zeena. A ray of hope enters Ethan's life when his wife's cousin Mattie arrives to help. His life is transformed as he falls in love Mattie but their fate is doomed by the stifling conventions of the time.
