Edith Wharton does not write happy books. :/ This one was… okay. And less dreadfully unhappy than her better ones. Lalala! ( )

Audiobook..................A lovely novella by Edith Wharton about what happens when a person sees the dawn of a new era before everyone else. In this case, the foreseer is a young man discovering the artwork of some of the Italian masters of religious art in the late 1800s. The story is moving because of the man's passion and deep belief in the art, along with the sacrifices he makes waiting for the "one man" to come along who will "unerstand" his collection. ( )
