From the back:
Seventeen-year-old Charity Royall is pining for change when a charming young architect from the city, Lucius Harney, walks into the derelict library she tends. He immediately captures her heart. Like the lush, summery Berkshires landscape surrounding them, Charity’s romance with Lucius is idyllic. But harsh realities soon set in – from the material deprivation of her impoverished hometown to her mysterious origins on “the Mountain,” Charity is met with obstacle after obstacle.
Known as Edith Wharton’s personal favorite and most sensational novel, Summer (1917) is a compelling and provocative coming of age story that remains profoundly relevant to our time. To sum it up, Summer is a tour de force – the embodiment of light, ever threatened by impending darkness.
This edition has been lovingly brought to life with original illustrations by Haleigh DeRocher. Also included in this edition are supporting materials about Edith Wharton and the books she wrote.

"Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing."

I’m so in love with your illustrated editions!! I got Summer along with the Pride and Prejudice bundle and love very thing. Both books are set up so beautifully. I can’t wait to add more to my collection.

Oh my gosh. I think this is the prettiest book I’ve ever owned. The quality is superb, the pages are good thick paper and it’s just beautiful from cover to cover. I love the font and the way it’s presented. I’ve never read this title, but I’ll be loving it regardless, for the love that went into making it and the beauty of it. How can you not love something that makes you smile just holding it? It’s going to be a perfect addition to my library, along with the Pride and Prejudice book. I’m so happy I purchased it! LOVE!
