The only good thing about this book it that it occupied my time driving to and from work for a few weeks. I kept thinking the story would finally get better and the heroine would at least go get a job or learn a trade, but she was a vapid, useless woman, caught in a world where women are disregarded except for ornamental purposes. I had a hard time identifying with her in this story.
She could have had the heroine find something to do to make a living, or she could have had her marry her love interest instead of waiting to fall in love with a rich man. She was so shallow, but I suppose it was the era and how she was raised.
I liked her "continental" accent.
No...it was shallow and plotless.
I was disappointed in this first book I have read by Edith Wharton. Perhaps it will be my last!
