Afterward

Afterward - Edith Wharton I made what is probably the fifth false start on this one. I've tried reading it several times over the last few months. I just can't finish the thing. It starts out with a great premise, a newly rich couple is looking to get back to basics in the English countryside. They want a house with all of the INconveniences including a ghost. They find what they want though the ghost is just a bit passive for their taste. Then the story ... starts... to... drag... and... drag.

I just can't finish it, but not for lack of trying.
