Editorial Reviews

In this Kate Chopin story, middle-aged and self-reliant Mamzelle Aurelie has never married but instead has chosen to live independently, spending most of her time managing her farm. However, left with her neighbor's children for a short time, Aurelie begins to soften and question some of her decisions. Narrator Liza Ross' performance is sturdy and precise, reflecting Aurelie's toughness and strength, and Ross gradually adds depth to her narration with layers of poignancy and regret in her voice, modulating the theatricality of the characters' accents.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the More Classic American Short Stories collection.
Here are eight stories from master American writers of the 19th century. They vary from sinister tales by Ambrose Bierce - why is that window boarded up? - and a reflective moment in the life of a woman without children, but forced to look after children, to classic short stories by O. Henry and Stephen Crane. There is even an elegiac description of an eclipse by James Fenimore Cooper, author of The Last of the Mohicans. Read with sensitivity and skill by Garrick Hagon and Liza Ross.
