The Daughters of the Late Colonel by Katherine Mansfield

A refreshing short story about two daughters who are lost upon their father's death. Without giving away too much, the learned behavior of these two young women is not all for naught.

A good book that shows the darker side of human nature from someone who was rescued from the streets. This gives mind to bear why, if one is rescued, why one would react so disparagingly.

This was an assigned read for a literature class; a good study of class in general and of its effects, especially on children and the poor.

You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect—you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break—her heart. So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there.Bob Marley

I read this assigned novella for one of my English Literature classes; it is a bit too graphic for my taste. A story of the effects of slavery on one black man and his wife in the 17th century. The portrayal of Tretry, his white master, can be seen a...more

The Turn of the Screw is an interesting read, but I need to warn you, it is disturbing. Henry James, in writing it, was ahead of his time, and not recognized for this modern, imaginative novella until much later after his death.
