A lightly regarded and little read novella by Wharton that seemed hurried and incomplete. Published in 1918, the year America entered the war, it was an attempt to highlight what Wharton viewed as American indifference, at least up until that point. Also to counter the perception that France needed to be rescued and the French shown how to do the things the right way.

That certainly rankled her because of her love for France, which she displayed in the young American character, Troy Belknap.What is surprising about the perceived failure of this work is that it came between Summer and The Age of Innocence, two of her best known novels.
