A Good Winter's Read: Ethan Frome

You'll never think of a sleigh ride in quite the same way after reading this haunting winter's tale, by Edith Wharton; it's a perfect January read (that ends in a major dustup), unless of course, you're a sufferer of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), characterized by episodes of depression that occur at a certain time of the year, usually during winter.The movie, based on Wharton's semi-autobiographical novel and starring Liam Neeson, umm, sucked, but don't let that sway you from picking up this bittersweet gem, a Mistress Quickly favorite.
