Early twentieth-century American author Edith Wharton's 1928 novel about a group of seven step-siblings who strike up a relationship with a solitary bachelor on a yacht while hoping that their parents' reconciliation lasts.

The Marne by Edith Wharton( Book )

2 editions published in 1918 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A privileged young American, Troy Belknap spent summers in France as a child and developed a love for the country and its people. His family was on their annual summer visit when WWI broke out. Distressed by the exodus of Americans fleeing the country, he wanted to aid the French against the German incursion, but he was too young to join the Foreign Legion. He went home to America but returned three years later and obtained a position as a Red Cross ambulance driver. He served during the Second Battle of the Marne in July, 1918. It was considered the beginning of the end of the war.  In many ways, the journey of Troy Belknap parallels the life of Wharton's friend, artist Ronald Simmons, to whom the work is dedicated and who died near the end of WWI. Simmons helped to organize the Comité des Étudiants Américans de L'École des Beaux-Arts which aided French students who had gone to the front, sending them clothes and gas masks. He and Wharton worked together from 1916-1917 to support convalescent homes for women and children at Groslay and Arromanches. The Marne is dedicated to the memory of Ronald Simmons, "who died for France August 12, 1918" three months before the end of the war
