This novella is different from the kind of books Wharton usually wrote involving the upper classes from which she came. Ethan Frome begins with an Engineer who is temporarily staying in a small town in Massachusetts. He becomes interested in the only character that stands out in the town of friendly simple people. The narrator gathers bits and pieces of the story from reticent townspeople and then when a snowstorm hits, he spends the night with Frome and his family.

His wife's cousin Mattie, on the other hand, is cheerful and healthy, and she wears a becoming cherry-colored scarf to the local dances. She has been living with the Fromes to help around the house, and she and Ethan have fallen in love. They are careful never to show their feelings for each other, but Zeena grows suspicious and decides to send Mattie away.

Young Ethan Frome walked at a quick pace along the deserted street, past the bank and Michael Eady's new brick store and Lawyer Varnum's house with the two black Norway spruces at the gate. Opposite the Varnum gate, where the road fell away toward the Corbury valley, the church reared its slim white steeple and narrow peristyle.
