I read this book when I was about fifteen years old and it really altered my perceptions of everyday life. Since than, I've come back to the story and other works by the same author multiple times for peace and calm and reassurance in my life. This book is definitely one of my all time favorites and I highly suggest you give it a try.

A novel that scandalized America because of its sexual frankness, and because of the unconventional behavior of its female protagonist, The Awakening (1899) has enjoyed vast popularity in the 20th century. Our new edition also includes stories from Chopin's Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie (1897), along with commentary and Kaye Gibbons's new introduction.
