The Only Rose | [Sarah Orne Jewett]

The Only Rose

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.

What the Critics Say

"Almost flawless examples of literary art." (Willa Cather)
"The world of Jewett's nineteenth-century coastal Maine village is a small one. But that world is not her measure. Deserts are not as vast nor oceans as deep as the hearts we encounter in these four stories." (AudioFile)
