This 1861 classic of social realismthe first book to be reprinted by the Feminist Press in its series of rediscovered women writersremains a powerful evocation of what Davis herself called thwarted, wasted lives . . . mighty hungers . . . and unawakened powers." The "New York Times Book Review" said of the novella: "You must read this book and let your heart be broken. With an insightful biographical essay by Tillie Olsen, and with two short stories never before anthologized, this expanded edition is the most complete volume available from this important nineteenth-century writer."
