Bunner Sisters

Gelesen von Margaret Espaillat

“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 side street 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) (3 hr 24 min)

A fine insightful, profound, yet at times hurmorous short novel by the great writer Edith Wharton. However she was wrong about top down social reform. Most successful reform comes from the bottom up. from the grass roots majority. sincerely dahszil male usa dahszil, me: i pray and hope for the end of the US empire and restoration of the free, fair, an more distribution of wealth US republic and as a peaceful, loving, contributor member of the world's family of nations)

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

Bummer Sisters

(4 Sterne)

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.

I listened to it yet again
