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.
