Louisa


Holding onto her hope for romantic love, Louisa refuses to encourage the attentions of a neighboring farmer, John Nye, who could, if Louisa married him, save her family from starvation and drudgery.

In Mary E. Wilkins Freeman's story of one young woman's stubborn struggle for freedom, Louisa earns her liberty through independence of mind and the determination that, so far as true love is concerned, "when I meet him I'll know it."
