    Probably the most famous of Edith Wharton's novels, Ethan Frome contrasts sharply with her usual ironic contemplation of the fashionable New York society to which she herself belonged and whose strengths and weaknesses she understood so well. Ethan Frome is a keenly-etched portrait of the simple inhabitants of a 19th-century New England village.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ethan Frome to be better than the print version?

    I was reminded once again of the power of this classic novel. A relentlessly sad story told with such humanity and intelligence. Also loved the female narrator. Imagined it was Wharton reading her novel aloud.


    What other book might you compare Ethan Frome to and why?

    Wuthering Heights


    What does C.M. Hebert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The warmth of a human voice, a female voice, helps the reader navigate this bleak tale.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Be careful what you wish for
