Sarah Orne Jewett's fiction depicts, with humor and dignity, the lives and values of the people of New England before the turn of the century. This unabridged collection of 4 of her best stories, beautifully performed in the dialect of southern Maine by Tana Hicken, presents the spirit and the humor of a place and an era long past. Martha's Lady is the wonderful story of the bond that develops between 2 young women - one a visiting cousin, the other an awkward and newly-employed maid. In Aunt Cynthy Dallett, 2 old friends reminisce on their way up the hill to visit Aunt Cynthy. The Hilton's Holiday tells the story of 2 young girls' first trip to town with their father, and in The Only Rose, a woman must decide which of her 3 deceased husbands' graves is to have a rose.

About the Author
Author Sarah Orne Jewett

Sarah Orne Jewett (1849–1909), novelist and short-story writer, was born and raised in South Berwick, Maine. The daughter of a country doctor, she received a lady’s education but maintained that her real learning came from her father, who fostered her writing talents and let her accompany him on his rounds. At age nineteen, she had her first short story published in the Atlantic Monthly. Her vignettes of the gently perishing glory of the Maine countryside and ports won her a place among the most successful of the local-color writers.
