The Front Yard: And Other Italian Stories
Constance Fenimore Woolson's fiction is heavily concerned with the notion of place and the ways in which the culture, traditions, and customs of a particular locale can influence the attitudes and relationships of the people who live there. This theme is front and center in many of the stories collected in The Front Yard, which draw heavily on Woolson's own experiences in Europe.
