by | Read by Harriet Walter

Fiction • 4.75 hrs. • Abridged • © 2008

This collection presents a rich medley of stories that touch upon the depths, triumphs, and complexities of women's experiences and relationships. Narrator Harriet Walter captures the restraint of all the heroines, as well as their various accents—American, English, Scots, French, and others, all uniquely believable. Walter delivers soft enunciations as the stories shift from the heartbreaking—“Atrophy" by Edith Wharton, "Some Ways of Love" by Charlotte Mew, and "Marriage à la Mode" by Katherine Mansfield—to the downright spooky—as in the forced lunacy of the imprisoned heroine in "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. This audio collection is perfect for listeners' brief journeys. A.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
