Bunner Sisters


Read by Margaret Espaillat

(4.5 stars; 42 reviews)

“Bunner Sisters,” like “The Age of Innocence” is set in 1870s New York, however the lives of Ann Eliza and Evelina Bunner reflect impoverished New York. The sisters run a "very small shop, in a shabby basement, in a sidestreet already doomed to decline." Shabby as it is, the sisters are happy in their small orderly community of supportive women. The story tells of the destruction of this life, and how the once content sisters are thrown into the realistic world outside of their little shop. (Summary by Margaret)

Good story but I don’t think Wharton ever wrote a bad one.

Bummer Sisters

(4 stars)

Short book loaded. with characters that are full and rich. Their struggles to just get by do not take away from them, by T add all to well Known concept of content with little or plenty.
