Edith Wharton's The Age Of Innocence, published in 1920, tells the story of Newland Archer. Set in New York in the 1870's, the story follows Archer and his marriage to May Welland. But there's a spanner in the works, so to speak. The spanner being May's cousin, the beautiful and tainted by scandal, Countess Ellen Olenska. Archer falls in love with her, but romantic novels being as they are, he ends up marrying May anyway. The book continues, focusing on his marriage and his hidden love for Ellen. The Age Of Innocence won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize.
