Maggie: A Girl of the Streets


Edith Wharton – –

“It is good, ethically and artistically, to read and read again a book with such a lift.”—New York Times
“A striking little book, striking in its simplicity and penetration, its passion and restraint.”—Times Literary Supplement
Sanctuary, published in 1903 is Edith Wharton’s third published fictional work, after The Touchstone and The Valley of Decision. The young Kate Orme, who begins the story happily in love with her fiancé, Denis Peyton, finds that he has told her a devastating lie. Edith Wharton (1862 – 1937) was an American novelist, short story writer, and designer. Wharton drew upon her insider’s knowledge of the upper class New York “aristocracy” to realistically portray the lives and morals of the Gilded Age. In 1921, she became the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Literature. She was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 1996.
