A woman nearing the end of her life knows that she must destroy intimate love letters between herself and another man so that no one, particularly her husband, can ever read them. Unable to part with them while still alive, the provision she makes for their disposal upon her death leads to devastating consequences.
Kate Chopin skillfully weaves themes of love, passion, trust, betrayal, selfishness, and cruelty in this tale.
