We read and discussed for my neighborhood book club. Highly recommend. Looking forward some day to being in the Gulf of Mexico, walking along a beach, drinking some coffee, walking streets of New Orleans, and having my digital voice assistant prompt me with references to Kate Chopin and the novel. It won’t “grab” the modern reader the way it must have in 1899, but it is very evocative and remains an early example of interiority 100 years after Jane Austen… Anticipating Virginia Woolf and James Joyce.
