Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton

The book Ethan Frome is an interesting novel with a tragic ending.  The main character never finds the freedom he desires.

Toward the end of the story, there is an escape plan that goes horribly wrong.  The circumstances are flipped, but the suffering continues.

I know it sounds like a sad book, but I enjoy reading it.  I feel for Ethan Frome, but not for his wife.  She experiences a bit of poetic justice and that kind of made me smile.
