I've been dipping into the classics again and first up is a short story by Kate Chopin -- The Kiss. As usual with Chopin's stories, even the shortest ones leave the reader with much to think about. Here's the blurb from Audible:
"Nathalie, a lovely and determined young lady, plans to marry Mr. Brantain, an unattractive but extremely wealthy man. When an unexpected event occurs involving her brother’s friend, Mr. Harvy, the consequences illustrate the finality of the choice Nathalie makes. Kate Chopin was a prolific writer of short stories and books that have been translated into films, plays, and operas. Chopin’s work often took place in Louisiana, and her book The Awakening was referenced in the HBO series Treme."
To listen to a sample and/or purchase, go to Audible here. There will be more Kate Chopin stories coming up. I'll post here when they become available on Audible.
