A Lost Lady is the portrait of a frontier woman who reflects the conventions of her age even as she defies them. To the people of Sweet Water, a fading railroad town on the Western plains, Mrs. Forrester is the resident aristocrat, at once gracious and comfortably remote. To her aging husband she is a treasure whose value increases as his powers fail. To Niel Herbert, who falls in love with her as a boy and becomes her confidant as a man, Mrs. Forrester is by turns steadfast and faithless, dazzling and pathetic: a woman whose charm is intertwined with a terrifying vulnerability.

1923 novel by Willa Cather, who is one of the 20th century's most underrated writers. "O Pioneers!" and "My Antonia" are her twin masterpieces, but "A Lost Lady" is a poignant and subtle novel about unrequited love and small town manners and gossip. Cather won the Pulitzer in 1923

Willa Cather is one of my favourite authors. This title along with My Antonia are two highly recommended books.
