Edith Wharton, a peerless observer and chronicler of society, tells the story of a naive girl from a humble background who meets an ambitious city boy, and a torrid romance ensues. With its frank treatment of a woman's sexual awakening, Summer created a sensation upon its initial publication. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author declared Summer a personal favorite among her works.
