In this masterpiece of nuance and revelation, Cather's portrait of Mrs. Forrester--through the eyes of her aging husband; Niel Herbert, who falls in love with her as a boy and becomes her confidant as a man; and the town of Sweet Water--is something like an answer to Madame Bovary, a lady who reflects the conventions of her age even as she defies them. Her personal transformations also embody the decline and coarsening of the American frontier.
