"The Story of An Hour" by Kate Chopin


One of my favorite short stories I've read is "The Story of An Hour" by Kate Chopin. In the title, the "story" refers to that of Louise's life. She lived in the true sense of the word, with the will and freedom to live for only one hour. The untrue love and untold feelings between a husband and a wife. I like the way the story evolves.

Most people carry the belief that marriage should occur only when two people are in love, though people marry for many reasons.

We dream a relationship that is built on openness, intimacy, and trust, but the truth is, our relationships do not always work that way. More often than not, our intimate relationships involve secrecy and deceit. In fact, if you want to look for deception and betrayal in your own life, the best place to start is close to home.
