It’s Free Audio Friday, Summertime edition! Today Elizabeth is featuring one of her solos for LibriVox, Edith Wharton’s 1917 novella Summer. Like Wharton’s more famous work Ethan Frome (which Elizabeth has also recorded for LibriVox), Summer is set in a very small rural New England town. Charity Royall longs to escape the claustrophobic confines of North Dormer and the inappropriate advances of her guardian Mr. Royall, who adopted her as a child from the nearby Mountain community. Hope arrives in the form of city boy Lucius Harney, who has come to research the architecture of the region; but will his presence in Charity’s life mean her salvation – or her undoing?
