Summer


Read by Robin Cotter

(4.5 stars; 41 reviews)

The story is one of only two novels by Wharton to be set in New England. The novel details the sexual awakening of its protagonist, Charity Royall, and shares many plot similarities with Wharton's better known novel, Ethan Frome. Only moderately well-received when originally published, Summer has had a resurgence in critical popularity since the 1960's. (Summary by Wikipedia) (5 hr 39 min)

Reviews

Unusual story, great reader


(3.5 stars)

Just the right length - gives lots of insight into Charity's views at this critical period of her life, but I like how much remains vague and uncertain. Both a celebration of independence and a trajedy of social pressures


(5 stars)

A touching story of life's complexities, those that we do to ourselves and those that others do to us. Very well read


(4 stars)

A charming novel ~ Edith Wharton never disappoints! Easy listening....

Excellent


(5 stars)

Robin Cotter did an excellent job.

Good reader, interesting piece of literature


(4 stars)

The book was beautifully written and well read. The plot gave me the heebie jeebies. Not sure if this was normal back then. Probably looking at this story from a modern lens. By today's standards, it's ghastly to think about this.
