Through the eyes of a visitor the reader observes Ethan Frome falling in love with wife’s niece while stuck on a desolate farm in a harsh New England winter.
❍ “Thwarted dreams, transformation and confinement are some of the themes that run through this tragic love story. Ethan Frome could have had a very different life if he had of escaped the land of broken dreams – Starkfield, Massachusetts. There is a strong sense of dread and the final twisted truth is shockingly satisfying. I loved the doomed love story and the slow build up of tension was beautifully constructed. A very enjoyable read.” – Jo
❍ “A seemingly simple story full of descriptive imagery and character studies. The language is efficient and meaningful and as such built the story using all the senses. I connected with Ethan Frome and the women in his life, and was captivated by their twisted love stories.” – Rachel
