Betrayal, greed, and consequences faced make this sly, masterful story a deft social and psychological portrait that stands with Wharton's best.

A lesser known Wharton novel, but a good one
This novella by the writer who is best known for "Ethan Frome" is less bleak than the more famous work, and equally subtle. Wharton likes to place her characters into excruciating dilemmas, in which the reader, even as she knows that the decision the character is making is a mistake, nevertheless empathizes with the character and feels that she might very well have made the same choice. Unfortunately, the ultimate consequences of these moral errors is usually disastrous for the character involved, though in this novel, the consequences are more mitigated than in "Ethan Frome". Another fine reading from Blackstone Audiobooks.
