Next up in Book Battle 2015 is a classic romance. I had a really hard time with this category because all I could think about was Pride and Prejudice, my favorite classic romance which I’ve read far too many times. I had to move myself away from Austen and delve deeper into the genre. It was by chance that I found Edith Wharton’s The Glimpses of the Moon. I actually saw the book at a local bookstore and loved the cover. Upon reading the back I decided that it would do.
The novel is about a young couple who decide to marry each other in order to mooch off their wealthy friends during their honeymoon. They make a pact that after a year they can decide to move their separate ways if they no longer wish to be together. I’m sure trials and tribulations will separate them for awhile but predict that they will stay together at the end of the novel. But we shall see. Wharton is known for some quite tragic endings, particularly Lily Bart.
Stay tuned for the full review of The Glimpses of the Moon. Happy reading!
