Ethan Frome works his unproductive farm and struggles to maintain a bearable existence with his difficult, suspicious, and hypochondriac wife, Zeenie. But when Zeenieas vivacious cousin enters their household as a ahired girl,a Ethan finds himself obsessed with her and with the possibilities for happiness she comes to represent.

In one of American fictionas finest and most intense narratives, Edith Wharton moves this ill-starred trio toward their tragic destinies. Different in both tone and theme from Whartonas other works, Ethan Frome has become perhaps her most enduring and most widely read novel.
