Wharton, Edith: Autres Temps..., v.1, 4 Feb 2008.
A long-ish short story, from 1916.
Mrs Lidcote has been a social pariah since she dared to get divorced. Since the divorce she has lived in retirement in Italy. Now she hears that her daughter Leila is about to make the same mistake, so she rushes back to New York. But is divorce still socially unacceptable?
Has a small sting in the tail.
