Buchbeschreibung

Nick Lansing and Susy Branch are two young and attractive, but penniless New Yorkers. They decide to marry, but realize their chances of happiness are slim without the wealth, taken for granted by their more privileged friends. Nick and Susy agree to separate if either of them encounters a more eligible proposition and set out on a lavish honeymoon in Europe, funded by their wealthier friends. Unexpected feelings and jealous passions ensue, set against a backdrop of exquisite villas, palazzos and chateaus in Europe’s glittering 1920s. A highly enjoyable page-turner, "The Glimpses of the Moon" was Edith Wharton’s last completed novel.

Edith Wharton (1862-1937) was an American author, best known for her sharp stories about the upper-class society into which she was born. Her major works include "The Age of Innocence" (1920), "Ethan Frome" (1911), and "The House of Mirth" (1905). She wrote over 40 books, which beyond novels included authoritative works on architecture, gardens, interior design, and travel. She was the first woman awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for "The Age of Innocence" in 1921.
