Edith Wharton’s 1911 novel Ethan Frome tells the story of a tragic love triangle. Set in the highly symbolic wintry landscape of Starkfield, Massachusetts, the narrative centers on the title character’s fraught relationships with his “sickly, cantankerous” wife Zeena and his young, beautiful cousin Mattie Silver. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett for Librivox)

Summary: “How dreadfully old I am getting! Sixteen!” Thus begins the lifelong diary of young Katherine as she pours out her hopes, dreams, and spiritual journey on the pages of her dear, old journal. Whimsical and charming Katherine is engagingly candid about her character flaws and her desire to know God. As you listen to her share her heart through these journal entries, you will be amazed and delighted by the depth of her character and the womanly wisdom and godliness she develops over the years. From the agonies of being a teenager to the delicate balancing act between being a wife/mother/daughter/neighbor, it is easy to relate to Katherine’s triumphs and trials whether you are 16 or 60. Listen to her unforgettable story set in the early 1800’s as you are encouraged to “step heavenward,” and don’t be surprised if you find yourself recommending it to all of your friends and family!(Introduction by Theresa Downey for Librivox)
