This book tells the story of eighteen-year-old Charity Royall, a girl who leads a dull life as a librarian in the small town of Dormor. She is the ward of Dormor's premier citizen Mr. Royall who, after the death of his wife, asks for her hand in marriage - a proposal that she refuses. A chance meeting with an architect called Lucius Harney ignites a romance that is continually fought by Mr. Royall, and what transpires is a tale of sexual-awakening, lost love, and false promises. Published in 1917, Summer is one of Edith Wharton's two novels set in New England, and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of her seminal work. This antique text has been elected for modern republication due to its immense literary value, and we are proud to republish it now complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.
