Publisher's Summary

Mary Wilkins Freeman (1852-1930) was an American writer, best known for her stories reflecting the world of women fighting for dignity and independence from men. Her tales typically describe domestic settings and intimate relationships and are told with sensitivity and a poignancy which illuminates a bygone era in vivid detail.

"The Revolt of Mother" tells the story of a strong and self-reliant farm wife who defies her obstinate husband by moving her household into his newly built barn when he refuses to build her a proper house.

I don’t care for the narrator’s reading style...

It’s difficult to enjoy the story due to the narrator’s reading style. Her emphasis and raspy end to sentences is...well I don’t even have a word, but I don’t like it, it’s off-putting. The story itself was good, but I don’t like how it ended.
