"Aunt" Charlotte gave up her daughter to afford the child a prosperous position in 19th-century society. Years later, on the eve of the girl's wedding, Charlotte's suppressed anguish surfaces. Wharton's keen eye for observing and articulating telling details of class and society elevates a soap opera scenario into a compelling drama.
