Jan 04,  · BOOK REVIEW: A New England Nun by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman Mary E. Wilkins Freeman was a very popular "regionalist" author in the late 19 th century, writing short stories and novels set in small town New England. "A New England Nun And Other stories," is a collection of short stories about nostalgic New England small town & village life, showcasing Wilkin's basic virtuosobs.com "Nun" of the title story is Louisa Ellis, a woman who has lived alone for many yea.

She produced over two dozen short stories and novels including two superb short story collections, A Humble Romance and Other Stories () and A New England Nun and Other Stories (). For me, personally, discovering the works of Mary Freeman has been an absolute delight. I am rather disappointed that I majored in English at an Ivy League. “A New England Nun” is a deceptively simple story with undercurrents of elaborate symbolism. Far more than just a tale depicting the plight of a domestic homebound New England woman, the story is a complicated mix of imagery and symbolism that reveal layers of meaning.
