Edith Wharton's critically praised 1907 novella offers a masterful take on the moral and social problems that arise when one culture clashes with another. Madame deTreymes is Wharton's own version of Downton Abbey complete with American heiresses, fortune hunting French nobility, unhappy marriages, moral complications, old versus new money, questionable couplings - the usual belle epoch trappings and no voice is more authentic than Wharton's.
About the Author
The acknowledged master of cross continent intrigue, Edith Wharton is not only a great story teller and keen observer of social behavior, she is a profound moralist. An expatriate and wealthy socialite herself, Wharton examines her own motives for remaining in Paris - where she died at seventy four - through deTreymes and other works.
