    Summer MOBI æ Paperback summer book, Summer PDFThis novel was first published in 1917 and I can’t help but be amazed by that The themes in this novel are current and as real today as they were a hundred years agoCharity Royall was born to a rough life on The Mountain and was rescued at the age of five by a lawyer in the village and his wife After the death of his wife Mr Royall did the best he knew how to raise the girl and although she knew their family was better off than the rest of the village Charity was filled with conflict and discontentFrom my perspective the conflicts and contrasts in this novel were the main themes age versus youth village life versus city life mountain life versus village life leaving versus staying alone versus loneliness independence versus dependenceAll of the characters in this novel experienced opposing duties – they were pulled in different directions whereby sometimes the heart

    Summer MOBI æ Paperback summer book, Summer PDFthis book is touted as edith wharton's most erotic book the introduction blabs on and on about its eroticism and how scandalous it is so i have devised a little drinking game i invite you i entreat you to prepare a shot glass with your favorite scotch or whiskey and do a shot every time you start feeling a little hot from all the sexy good times i pretty much guarantee that shot glass will be untouched by the end of your readings this book is not erotic even in the broadest most mormonic sense i think there is a kiss or two which for wharton is hot but it's a stretch to call it erotic this is a book where people get preggers by proximity two people of opposite genders are seated beside each other and suddenly the lady is up the pole this might be the first appearance of the sexy librar

    Summer MOBI æ Paperback summer book, Summer PDF The longing to escape to get away from familiar faces from places where she was known had always been strong in her in moments of distress She had a childish belief in the miraculous power of strange scenes and new faces to transform her life and wipe out bitter memoriesAh summertime What better time of year to dream of escape new love and bright futures Well certainly Edith Wharton may reveal such dreams to you but any reader familiar with this author knows that she will depict the bitter reality for you as well I was not misled into thinking this would be a feel good diversion during a family road trip I have read Wharton and knew what to exp

    Summer MOBI æ Paperback summer book, Summer PDFIN FULL CIRCLE This is a tale that comes to life during a Summer and the descriptions of the airy landscape under the sun are amongst the most enrapturing aspects of this novelAnd then there is a story of conflict First and foremost of the heroine Charity Royall who is not a heroine at all She is in conflict with her past with her present and she suspects with her future She rebels against those who charitably have offered her a refuge and a life granting her her name as a promising and foreboding start The story seems to follow a straight path a well known path but too many doubts too many uncertainties too many false impressions too many unknowns too many remote possibilities make that path seem and like a treacherous chimeras and the only way left is to go

    Summer MOBI æ Paperback summer book, Summer PDFWritten in Wharton's inimitable style the prose in this novella is of course beautiful Every word and phrase lends itself to defining summer in a small country town It makes for beautiful readingCharity is not a likeable character but I still felt sorry for her It was apparent from the outset that life would probably not go well for her especially in one of Edith Wharton's novels which are not famous for happy endings The ending was pretty inevitable although it could have been worseFor a classic written exactly one hundred years ago this one is an enjoyable easy read

    Summer MOBI æ Paperback summer book, Summer PDFFour reasons explain why this novella clicked for me It is not about glitzy high societyIt draws the life of ordinary people and it draws their lives realisticallyIt illustrates that real life consists most often of choosing between mediocre alternatives Rarely are we given that chance in a million but at the same time a less optimistic choice need not be without hope or possibilityIt encourages readers to focus on the good that in fact does exist in what appears at first glance only limited unpromising choices It is up to us to make the best of the choices given us The message is not pounded in; it is delivered with subtletyThere that is the essential what I think the book conveys and why I think the book is wort
