These brilliant stories deal with love and life in Louisiana during the Civil War through the turn of the century. The Cajun and French-Creole traditions make a rich backdrop for these deeply human tales. In Disirie's Baby a young plantation owner marries and has a child with features of the slave race; in A Lady of Bayou St. John a young woman becomes a devoted wife after her husband is killed; in The Story of an Hour a woman is surprised by her feelings at the news of her husband's death. Other stories include Love on the Bon-Dieu, The Unexpected, Fedora, The Godmother, and At the 'Cadian Ball. After more than a half century of neglect, Kate Chopin's writings have at last regained the attention of readers, writers, and critics. These stories, some of her best, demonstrate her special insight and understanding of irony. Download and start listening now!

    " I love the twist of this short story--and such a true portrayal of what life must have been like for women. Nice job, Kate Chopin--and a voice extremely ahead of her time:) "

    " I love Chopin storys. Although she only write short story, the story line, symbolism, and other use of literary devises, are used much more cleverly than most novels. I loved this story and personally think it is one of her best. "

    " This is a great short story that can be found in most Kate Chopin collections - usually along with the Awakening. "
