about this book

Myra Henshawe is a young woman who gave up a fortune to marry for love. This worldly, sarcastic, and even wicked woman may have been destined for something greater than love. In her portrait of Myra and her marriage, Cather shows the evolution of a human spirit as it comes to bridle against the constraints of ordinary happiness and seek and otherworldly fulfillment.
