John Amherst, an idealistic middle manager in a New England textile mill, is committed to improving the deplorable working conditions of the laborers in his charge. But his efforts are frustrated by an upper management whose only concern is maximizing profits. When Amherst eventually marries Bessy Westmore, the widow of the former mill owner, he is able at last to initiate an ambitious project of reform. But happiness for John and Bessy proves to be short-lived. It becomes quickly clear that Bessy does not understand and cannot share her new husband's passion for just labor conditions and industrial reform. She even resents the time he devotes to his work and the way in which his expenditures impact her extravagant lifestyle. Complicating the situation is the strong friendship that Bessy's old friend, Justine, develops with Amherst. Employed as a live-in tutor for Bessy's daughter, Justine eventually finds herself in an untenable position. How she reacts under pressure has lasting consequences for herself and those around her

Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton( Book )
5 editions published in 1911 in English and held by 482 libraries worldwide
In Ethan Frome, the reader is guided through the observations of the events during a winter storm by an unnamed narrator. The action centers around the characters of Ethan, his wife Zeena and Zeena's cousin Mattie. Ethan falls in love with Mattie who has come to help care for a chronically ill Zeena. Zeena learns of Ethan's feelings for Mattie and plans to send her away. Ethan plans to run away with Mattie but feels guilty and backs out when a neighbor compliments him on his patience and dedication to Zeena during her illness. Instead, he takes Mattie to the train station. On the way, they stop at a tree laden hill where they had talked of going sledding at one time. They go down once, despite the danger of the trees. Afterwards, Mattie proposes they make a suicide pact; they will sled into a tree and die together. Ethan refuses at first but is finally swayed. However, as in real life, their plans do not go as expected. Originally a French language composition begun by Wharton while she was studying in Paris, she may have based this story on the real account of a 1904 sledding accident. One of the girls involved, Kate Spencer, survived the accident and later became a friend to Wharton. Wharton maintained that Ethan Frome was a tale rather than a novel, implying a moral to the story. Critics have debated the morals of the character's suffering since the novel's release

Tales of men and ghosts by Edith Wharton( Book )
3 editions published in 1910 in English and held by 292 libraries worldwide
Most of the stories in Tales of Men and Ghosts take place in New York City or Europe. The "tales of men" contain subtle plots dealing with the irony of life, while the "tales of ghosts" contain plots based more on psychological perception than the paranormal. Their success depends on what Wharton referred to as their "thermometrical quality." In her opinion, a well-written ghost story had the ability to send "a cold shiver down one's spine." Given her larger works, it is a bit surprising that all but two of the tales, "Afterward" and "The Letters," have male protagonists
The finer grain by Henry James( Book )
2 editions published in 1910 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
Written during his convalescence as James recovered from an illness, the stories collected in The Finer Grain embody the strengths of the author's late period. Though not quite as hauntingly complex as novels such as The Portrait of a Lady or The Wings of the Dove, these shorter pieces stand as a testament to Henry James' significance as a major literary force in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries
The ivory tower by Henry James( Book )
2 editions published in 1917 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
"In 1914, Henry James began work on a major novel about the immense new fortunes of America's Gilded Age. After an absence of more than twenty years, James had returned for a visit to his native country; what he found there filled him with profound dismay. In The Ivory Tower, his last book, the characteristic pattern underlying so much of his fiction - in which American "innocence" is transformed by its encounter with European "experience"--Receives a new twist: raised abroad, the hero comes home to America to confront, as James puts it, "the black and merciless things that are behind the great possessions."" "James died in 1916 with the first three books of The Ivory Tower completed. He also left behind a "treatment," in which he charted the further progress of his story. This fascinating scenario, one of only two to survive among James's papers, is also published here together with a striking critical essay by Ezra Pound."--Jacket

The dawn of a to-morrow by Frances Hodgson Burnett( Book )
6 editions published between 1905 and 1907 in English and held by 261 libraries worldwide
The Dawn of a Tomorrow is a novella by the English-American novelist and writer Frances Hodgson Burnett who is more known for her children's classics. The story was first serialized in a magazine in the beginning of the twentieth century and was also adapted to the stage and performed numerous times. It tells the story of a desperate gentleman with the resolution to commit suicide by having a pistol's bullet in the head. He goes to buy the pistol, yet he gets lost on his way back home because of the London fog. As he is strolling through the streets of the city, he meets a young beggar and gives her a coin. She invites him to drink a cup of coffee with her and strangely succeeds in making him forget about his misery and despair for a while. Generally, drawing on a rather Christian conception of the world, Burnett's story is about not losing faith in goodness and in life in spite of all possible hardships. Burnett incites her readers to be always optimistic since there are at least "two ways of looking at a London fog." The story is also an invitation for the wealthy to think about the miseries of the poor
