I am loving this piece so far right now and excited to contiune to read on. I think that Wharton's writing style is so present and I feel as if I am back during this time with these characters. The women talk in ways that I feel would have happened. I feel like Wharton's writing is extremely smooth and at times feels like I am reading a sonet or something from Shakespeare. I really like Charity's character, I feel the sympathy from her upbringing. Maybe this time its because of Wharton's writing style. Lawyer Royall is a strong character I feel and I like what he did for Charity.
I am excited to continue to read on in this story. I am curious though if some of these things Wharton is writing about has anything to do with her life or childhood? I guess only time and class discussion with help with understanding that.
