Publisher's Summary

Ann Eliza and Evelina Bunner are two unmarried sisters who own a small notions shop in a shabby section of New York City circa 1900. The older sister, Ann Eliza, buys a small clock for her sister's birthday from a tiny shop and meets the owner, a German immigrant named Herman Ramy. Once Mr. Ramy enters their lives, things begin to change in ways that neither sister could have imagined. What seems like a simple story is one of love, longing, selfishness, self-sacrifice, missed opportunities, and the unfairness of life for poor women, particularly those over 30 during this period.

No one gut wrenches like Edith Wharton

All the classic Edith Whartonisms are here--money concerns for a certain class of lady, women trapped in an impossible situation, the danger of trying to trade up for a little more happiness and losing all that you had...it is not a "fun" read but it is quite good.
