Oxford World’s Classics
Charity Royall yearns to escape her dull existence in the New England backwater where she lives with her guardian. When her sexual nature is awakened, darker undercurrents in the community threaten her future happiness. The ‘hot’ counterpart to Ethan Frome, and equally memorable, Summer was regarded by Wharton as one of her best works.
