    I read the Age of Innocence, I loved it :) It's about this man named Newland Archer and he's engaged to marry the young and beautiful May Welland. It takes place in the New York. Newland comes from a rich family and so does May, so everyone in their families are happy about their marriage. Soon may's cousin Ellen moves from Europe to New York after divorcing her husband. Newland is very judgemental of her at first but the more time he spends with her the more he falls in love with her. Eventually Newland is torn between doing what his family wants him to do (to marry May) and being with the person he loves. It's a good book, read it :)
