These heartwarming stories, from a forgotten 19th-century master, depict the lives of women in the Louisiana of a hundred years ago. The title story, "Charlie," introduces us to a spirited tomboy on the verge of becoming a young lady. "Tante Cat'rinette" is the story of an old black Creole. "A Matter of Prejudice" shows us the changes in a French grandmother. "Beyond the Bayou" tells of a black Creole woman who saves the life of a young boy. "A Pair of Silk Stockings" relates a young mother's temporary escape from poverty, while "Regret" tells the story of a spinster who must deal with 4 young children. Kate Chopin (1850-1904) is one of America's finest writers of short stories. These unabridged selections demonstrate her fine insight. Jacqueline Kinlow's performance is well-suited to the spirit of the works.More
"These stories center on women who face challenges and what happens to them when they accept those challenges." (Library Journal)

Narrator is unintelligible
The combination of the narrator's English accent and her attempt at Negro dialect (which she has obviously never heard) make the story unintelligible. I gave up 15 minutes into the story because I simply could not understand what the woman was trying to say. I am requesting a refund.
Unfortunately, Chopin is an excellent writer and I was looking forward to hearing the story.
