The story follows the life of Tina, a young woman caught between the mother who adopted her - the beautiful, upstanding Delia - and her true mother, her plain, unmarried 'aunt' Charlotte, who gave Tina up to provide her with a socially acceptable life.

The three women live quietly together until Tina's wedding day, when Delia's and Charlotte's hidden jealousies rush to the surface. Originally serialized in The Red Book magazine in 1922, The Old Maid is an examination of class and society as only Edith Wharton could undertake.

    " Whew--intense few hours of listening. This short novel is devastating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Matthew | 8/15/2013

    " Short and easy to read. For those of you who like reading books about the marriage customs of wealthy New Yorkers in the nineteenth century (ie. EVERYONE). The ending comes up sorta quickly, but it's a nice light read while you're doing your laundry. "

    " One of the best quotes I have ever read..."She found long ago she could get away with almost anything as long as she didn't stop to explain." "

    " I liked this book. It was the second Edith Wharton book I read. It was really great and I own an old first edition copy and it was the only copy I have ever been able to find of it. I would like to own an updated copy so I can loan it out. SO well written and depressing. I loved it.. "
