Wealthy young American girls visit England and lay siege to the hearts of members of the nobility. This last, unfinished novel of Wharton’s is witty, romantic and beautifully perceptive. Narrated by Flo Gibson. AVAILABLE ON CASSETTE AND CD.
Listener ReviewsAccomplished reader Gibson, who has committed to read all of Wharton, seems to be Wharton reincarnated. Her mature voice, pace and sense of wonder capture the spirit, energy and naïveté of her times. Wharton's last novel was unfinished. For Wharton fans, anglophiles, fans of America's history, and the Gilded Age in particular.
