Publisher's Summary

Kate Chopin's brilliant short story about an hour in the life of a young wife.
When news arrives that Louise's husband has been killed in a railroad accident, her family and friends are careful to break it to her gently, knowing that she has a heart condition. Louise locks herself in her room for an hour, during which she realizes that this bereavement is the start of a new life of freedom and independence. But a much greater shock awaits her when she leaves her room and goes downstairs....

A brilliant little story

This is one of my very favorite short stories. It manages to be complex and deep and hugely effective in a very short time. It is very well read by the narrator.
