The House of Mirth (EN)

Whartonová Edith

Orphaned following the death of her parents, Lily understands that she must use her beauty, grace and charm to attain the social position she longs for, but she is caught between her desire for wealth and a strong moral conscience, which sabotages every opportunity she encounters.

Lily’s employment as a maid finds her visiting the houses of New York’s upper echelons, where she is invited to live lavishly and party with her patrons until the early hours.
