Book Description:
1923. American novelist. In her later years, Cather's fascination with the American Southwest, early Canada and Catholicism reflects her search for alternatives to the greedy civilization she felt was replacing the spirit of the early pioneers. As with many of Cather's works, A Lost Lady is told by a male narrator, Neil Herbert. From early adolescence he is an admirer of Marian Forrester, the heroine, who is the wife of a former railroad magnate now settled on a large farm in South Dakota. Neil leaves to go to school in the East and as he matures his idolization of Ms. Forrester begins to lessen as he learns that there is both more and less to her than the glittering self assured woman that meets his young eyes. After her husband, the Captain, dies, she falls on bad times, hurt rather than aided by advice from her lawyer. Her fall however is as much moral as it is financial, or at least it is in Neil's eyes. He notes that she has begun to use cosmetics and sherry. He finds her voice too loud, her laughter too forced. Neil loses his lady, or perhaps it is his illusion of her that is lost.
