A Country Doctor
Brimming with period realism and layers of thematic depth, this novel is both a luminous portrayal of rural Maine and a semi-autobiographical look at Jewett's world in the late 19th century. In it, Nan's struggle to choose between marriage and a career as a doctor, between the confining life of a small town and a self-directed one as a professional, mirrors Jewett's own conflicts. It also eloquently gives voice to the women's issues of Jewett's time, cementing her as an icon in American literature. Introduction by Paula Blanchard.
