Edith Wharton's 1911 novel Ethan Frome tells the story of a tragic love triangle. Set in the highly symbolic wintry landscape of Starkfield, Massachusetts, the narrative centers on the title character's fraught relationships with his "sickly, cantankerous" wife Zeena and his young, beautiful cousin Mattie Silver.

This is a great book and a great reading of it. I heard in an interview Elizabeth Klett said it was one of her favorites she'd done and I see why. I highly recommend this one!

Unusual Tale

(5 Sterne)

I don’t think I’ve ever heard a story quite like this one before. It is truly unique. Basically just a slice of life and how an unusual occurrence affects the lives of a small number of people. Elizabeth does a great job as always with the narration. I recommend giving it a listen.

Fantastic recording

(5 Sterne)

I've just completed chapter one, and I already feel that Elizabeth Klett's wonderful recording is one of the best I've listened to yet! Such a pleasure to listen to, she has really captured the magic and mystery of the story. I can't wait to hear the rest. Thanks Elizabeth!

a moving story! wondefully read!

(5 Sterne)

short story but wonderful and worth a read! i think i have seen a movie from this book, but i did not recall it much while reading. a lesson in marrying "just because" and the misery it can cause.

Heartbreaking story.

(5 Sterne)

As always, Elizabeth Klett does a wonderful job reading this sad story of a marriage of convenience, manipulation and unrequited love. Also there is a film of this story starring Liam Neeson and Patricia Arquette that is very well done.

A brilliant story brilliantly read

(5 Sterne)

This is one of my favourite classics, a fantastic story. I've lived this story from the day I read it - and Klett does not disappoint. It is a joy to hear her read. Thank you!

Depressing story

(4 Sterne)

A love triangle story (sort of). This story is so stark and depressing in so many aspects. Elizabeth Klett does a lovely job with the story. I think she well conveyed the depressing dreariness of this sad sad story.

Wow, I didn’t see that coming! I do not want to say too much, but this story is now on my favorite list. Such a different time with such a powerful message of what responsibility meant to our great grandparents.
