What could be better for a summer read, than "Summer." As late spring passes into summer and fall, a young woman has her first - and probably only - romantic encounter. The description is lush (too much for some) and delicate. The character of Charity is wonderfully delineated. Only problem: The relationship with her guardian is a bit difficult to swallow. He has essentially been acting as her parent, so I don't quite get how he could become a legitimate marriage contender.

If you read one Edith Wharton novel, (and you should!) this is the one to pick. A surprisingly modern themed coming of age story set in small town New England. Charity Royal is one of the most intriguing heroines in modern fiction.
