‘What I meant is that when you‘ve lived a little longer you‘ll see what complex blunderers we all are: how we‘re struck blind sometimes, and mad sometimes-and then when our sight and our senses come back , how we have to set to work and build up little by little , bit by bit, the precious things we‘ve smashed to atoms without knowing it. Life‘s just a perpetual piecing together of broken bits‘

One of my favourite Whartons so far. So readable. 💔

batsy Ooh, I need to read this soon! And I love your edition 😍 2mo
Cathythoughts @batsy The writing is beautiful ( as always) and there was something very comforting about it , I don‘t know what though 🤷‍♀️ 2mo

Cathythoughts @CarolynM I have no idea what happened 😂🤷‍♀️.. I enjoyed the journey though. 2mo
Cathythoughts @CarolynM Bizarre ending! 2mo
CarolynM That ending was so unexpected and so inconclusive! I‘ve decided the Mrs Murrett thing was a cover and Sophy did go away with Owen, having confessed all. That‘s why he was so keen to get rid of Anna. But was Anna going to marry Darrow or finally ditch him? I can‘t decide. 2mo
TrishB Lovely quote ❤️ 2mo
Gissy It is indeed a beautiful and meaningful quote!❤️ 2mo
Tamra Perfect! 👌🏾 2mo
Tamra @CarolynM I agree! I think Anna went off with Darrow. I concluded that because of her earlier statement to him their happiness depended upon Sophy & Owen‘s. But, who knows?! (edited) 2mo
Lcsmcat @CarolynM My sentiments when I finished, too! Because I read it from the ebook of the complete Wharton novels I had no warning that I was at the end!! 2mo
Graywacke Such a terrific quote. 2mo
