Publisher's Summary

Alice Lethbury, a young wife stuck in a dull, passionless marriage, decides to adopt a baby, Jane, with the consent of her reluctant husband. As Jane grows up, it becomes clear that she has entered the Lethburys' lives for a reason.

Edith Wharton was born to a wealthy New York family and, in her writing, she blended insights into the privileged classes with her natural wit to write stories, which are notable for their humor and incisiveness. She published more than 50 books, including fiction, short stories, travel books, historical novels, and criticism. This is one of her best short stories.

What the Critics Say

"'The Mission of Jane' is a sardonic little comedy, one the best Mrs. Wharton ever wrote....From any point of view, 'Jane' is a masterpiece." (Edith Wharton: The Contemporary Reviews)
