When you have a past filled with regret it may not be a good idea to find someone to help you dwell on the pain you've caused others. Hawthorne places this scenario in an out-of-the-way location where a woman is allowed to see the painful result of her actions. This journey comes with an awful price - and awful company. A classic story narrated by Glenn Hascall.
