Age of Innocence

Dear,all

This story is set in NEW YORK in the 1870s.
In this age has a lot of social rules.
Divorce had to be avoided ,to save a family's good name.
It was unacceptable for young unmarried women to live alone.
Mrs. Ellen Olenska loved her cousin's fiance.
Also,he too loved her.
Her cousin's "MARY" knew that.
If  she blamed it ,he would run away with Ellen.
So,MARY was winner of this case.
Finally I thought about the author.
Mrs. Ellen Olenska looks like the author.
I think this story was born in the author's experiences.
The character's struggle to decide between duty and passion was touchingly described.
I want to watch the movie.
