Young and aristocratic Newland Archer is engaged to the sheltered and beautiful May Welland. But when May's disgraced cousin Ellen arrives from Europe, she turns their high-society New York world upside down. The young, successful Newland Archer and sweet socialite May Welland are the high society couple they were always meant to be. However, fresh on the heels of their engagement, they find their world upended by the scandalous arrival of May's cousin, Countess Ellen Olenska. Recently separated from her husband and surrounded in rumors, Ellen returns to America and is reluctantly befriended by Archer and his bride to be. Initially disturbed, Archer grows more appreciative of Ellen's free-spirited ways as she opens his eyes to the world past Fifth Avenue. Torn between his loyalty to his marriage and disillusion with New York aristocracy, Archer begins to question all that he knows about love and passion while hopelessly pursuing the unattainable Countess. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Age of Innocence is both modern and readable.

About the Author
Wharton, Edith: - "

EDITH WHARTON (1862 - 1937) was a unique and prolific voice in the American literary canon. With her distinct sense of humor and knowledge of New York's upper-class society, Wharton was best known for novels that detailed the lives of the elite including: The House of Mirth, The Custom of Country, and The Age of Innocence. She was the first woman to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and one of four women whose election to the Academy of Arts and Letters broke the barrier for the next generation of women writers.
