The Reckoning | Edith Wharton

There had been no scandal connected with the divorce: neither side had accused the other of the offence euphemistically described as "statutory." The Arments had indeed been obliged to transfer their allegiance to a State which recognized desertion as a cause for divorce, and construed the term so liberally that the seeds of desertion were shown to exist in every union.

A lovely person called @batsy has sent these awesome goodies to me. Garfield is so funny, I will certainly have laugh out loud moments while perusing it. And yay, another Edith Wharton! I am loving her writing in The Age of Innocence. That cover of AAIW is simply superb! The postcard is cute, hello to Malaysia (I hope to visit someday), and I am going to use the little diary soonly soon! Merci beaucoup, mon chéri! 💜

TrishB Lovely 💕 14mo

"If marriage was the slow life-long acquittal of a debt contracted in ignorance, then marriage was a crime against human nature."

Wharton dissects an unconventional marriage and a lonely widow with tragic results in these short stories.

LeahBergen I love Wharton. ❤️ 2y
Brie @LeahBergen Me too 2y
batsy Joining in on the Wharton love. I should read more of her short stories. 2y
Brie @batsy This is the first time I've read her short stories but I want to read more too. So far I've only read her novels. 2y
