Life Alone in Mary E. Wilkins Freeman's A New England Nun

- Life Alone in Mary E. Wilkins Freeman's A New England Nun It is hard to imagine a life in American society without first picturing marriage in a church, white picket fences, and babies.

Describing battle scenes he make the reader feel the battle describing pain, fear, anger, and more.
