My recording of Edith Wharton's Bunner Sisters went on sale on Audible yesterday via Listen 2 a Book.
Ann Eliza and Evelina Bunner are two unmarried sisters who own a small
notions shop in a shabby section of New York City circa 1900. The older
sister, Ann Eliza, buys a small clock for her sister's birthday from a
tiny shop and meets the owner, a German immigrant named Herman Ramy.
Once Mr. Ramy enters their lives, things begin to change in ways that
neither sister could have imagined. What seems like a simple story is
one of love, longing, selfishness, self-sacrifice, missed opportunities,
and the unfairness of life for poor women, particularly those over 30
during this period.
Love the classics!
