Product Overview

New York City, May 1894. Mario Alfieri, a world-famous tenor, seeks only a house and few months of relative quiet before his Metropolitan Opera debut. Clara Adler, the dispossessed ward of a recently deceased millionaire, has secrets she has yet to discover. Their chance meeting in a Gramercy Park mansion kindles a love as swift as it is unexpected, entangles them in an intrigue stretching back two decades, and earns them an implacable enemy.

"Set in the early 1890s, the tale has trademark Wharton details...but...these seem contrived and artificial....As melodramatic and stagy as any opera, but without the compensations of music and singers."
From the Publisher
Annotation A world-famous tenor named Mario Alfieri arrives in New York in 1894 and falls passionately in love with an impoverished young Jewish woman, Clara Adler. After their marriage, they are plagued by two people who know the truth about Clara's past and threaten to reveal it. Set in the plush past glories of Gramercy Park, the novel is an accurate depiction of a time and a milieu.
Editors Note An evocative debut novel of murder, revenge, and obsession in New York City at the turn of the century follows Mario Alfieri, the world's greatest tenor, who arrives in New York City to escape Europe's adoration and too many loveless unions, but when a chance encounter in Gramercy Park with a beautiful woman results in a passionate love affair, Mario unexpectedly acquires a merciless enemy. Reader's Guide included. Reprint.
