"In her bedroom she shut the door and stood still, looking about her in a fit or dreamy wonder. Her feelings were unlike any she had ever known: richer, deeper, more complete. For the first time everything in her, from head to foot, seemed to be feeling the same full current of sensation."

Anna Leath is a young widow, an American living in France. Behind her lies an arid marriage and a life deeply influenced by the rigid code of Old New York. The novel opens as Anna awaits a new and fuller life. A chance encounter in London with George Darrow, the first love of her youth, has left her awakened, disturbed, filled with new hope. Anna returns to her beautiful country chateau, Givre, to await her future: between two short distances can anything happen to disrupt such promise? But the charming Sophie Viner, governess to Anna's young daughter, holds the key to a secret which comes to reveal that Anna's future - and the very foundation of her life - is fragile where it appears most strong.

Edith Wharton (1862-1937), friend and contemporary of Henry James, was the most accomplished American novelist of her generation.
