    The turbulent marriage of philanderer, opportunist, and dishonest journalist Bartley Hubbard and naive, possessive Mary Gaylord ends in divorce. At the time of its publication, this socially realistic novel was considered daring for its handling of the divorce question.

    Overall

    Two young people in not quite equal love with each other, marry, amid doubt on the part of friends and family.
    William Dean Howells finely relates the day by day dissolution of their marriage. Recurring disagreements alternate with temporary reconciliations until the final break-up.
    I enjoyed the flow and logic of the story, all the characters were engaging and behaved in character throughout. The various settings for the story gave it substance and color.
    The reader's diction is a bit anglicized for this book, otherwise, her reading is very good. And in spite of a brief passage of poor sound quality, "A Modern Instance" gets all five stars.
