Free EBook Friday - The Awakening

This week's book:

Book it reminds me of:

Although they seem dissimilar on first glance, these are both novels about alienation and New Orleans society.  The Awakening doesn't have vampires, of course, but the quality of the writing is quite a bit better.  This edition also contains some terrific short stories that explore racial and social themes in a very modern way - it's hard to believe that Kate Chopin died in 1904.  If you liked The Help, you should get this just to read Desiree's Baby, her most famous short story.

Note: If you can't see the books, turn off AdBlock for this page.  Book prices are subject to change quickly; this book was free when this post went up.
