The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton

Posted on: 09/05/2010


The House of Mirth is also a wonderfully written story by Edith Wharton. Again, she writes about the social norms and oppression of woman in society. Edith Wharton herself had a divorce when it was very scandalous. The story is a sad one, a story about a woman who loses her position in society by trusting another to manage her affairs. I love this novel and I hope you will as well.
