A Lost Lady
by
Willa Cather

"Marian Forrester is symbolic flower of the Old American West. She draws her strength from that solid foundation, bringing delight and beauty to her elderly husband, to the small town of Sweet Water where they live, to the prairie land itself, and to the young narrator of her story. All are bewitched by her brilliance and grace, and all are ultimately betrayed. For Marian longs for 'life on any terms' and in fulfilling herself, she loses all she loved and all who loved her." - Goodreads.com
