Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton

Ethan Frome

by Edith Wharton

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
3 Hrs. 42 Min.


Convention and circumstance have bound the young Ethan Frome to a wife he cannot love. Grimly resigned to his fate, he sees for himself a life as bleak and constricted as the New England farm on which he lives. But the sudden appearance of his ailing wife's orphaned young cousin, Mattie Silver, rouses in Ethan a fierce passion that provokes a last, desperate impulse to free himself from his dismal destiny. Edith Wharton's classic Ethan Frome vividly demonstrates how conventional conscience and narrow-minded local concerns work together to stifle what is most vital and compelling in the human spirit.
