In this lovely collection of short stories and sketches, published in 1895, Jewett once again shows her mastery in crafting authentic, poignant portrayals of regular New England folk. Stories such as, “The Tale of Nancy,” “A War Debt,” and “The Only Rose” tenderly and cleverly reveal much about human nature.
