Publisher's Summary

Although originally published in 1899, this book's leading character, Edna Pontellier, could be mistaken for a modern day liberated woman. In the summer of her 28th year, as she watched numerous mothers on a beach, she vowed to honor the deep yearnings within herself that she sensed were unfulfilled by marriage and motherhood. She abandoned her conventional role in life and made for herself a controversial and ultimately destructive life.

Hollow

I must say this book when read is far more moving than when listened to on this robotic audiobook.

Powerful

This work is nothing less than succulently powerful. Chopin sucked me right in, and I felt it all with Edna. I'm left, several days after finishing it, still thinking about the story. Potent stuff.
