    Another relatively unknown author, Kate Chopin was a pinnacle of the local color movement. The Awakening takes place in Victorian New Orleans among the Creole culture. It's a great story of a woman who does not embrace her role as wife, mother, or her place in society, and wishes to be free. This novel was not received well and even banned when it was written because women were not allowed to think or behave freely, and it was seen as distasteful. It's a great book!
