"Edith Wharton's subtle variation on the theme of the eternal triangle features Anna Leath, a rich American widow living in France; her daughter's delightful governess, Sophy Viner; and the first love of Anna's youth, George Darrow, who has come back into her life. Hoping to be reunited with George, Anna finds the path of love does not run smooth. THE REEF first appeared in 1912 when Edith Wharton was just fifty and at the height of her powers as a writer. It is a beautifully written, highly characteristic and eminently readable novel by a writer whose popularity is increasing by the year."

Industry Reviews

A reissue in an edition uniform with others recently republished, this has an introduction by Louis Auchincloss. The Reef, which first appeared in 1912, was the only Jamesian novel Edith Wharton wrote (although others were allegedly believed to have been attempted) and while not as well known as some of her other works, has always been held in high critical regard.
