Based on diaries written between 1908 and 1920, With a Heart for Any Fate, tells the coming of age story of Hazel Hungerford Howland, a young American woman, as she works through her feelings about marrying her young suitor, Carlton Corwith.
As ‘With a Heart for Any Fate’ begins, the year is 1920 and twenty-nine year old Hazel is waiting somewhat impatiently for the arrival of her beau, Carlton Corwith who is coming in on the train from Southampton. Over the course of the next few days, Carlton will be visiting with Hazel at her childhood home in La Ray, New York, and getting to know Hazel’s family.
When he first arrives, Carlton too, is somewhat impatient. He had proposed to Hazel, and now he hopes that soon she will be giving him the answer that he has been anticipating. But first, Hazel wants Carlton to hear the story of how she pursued her childhood dreams of becoming a teacher and succeeded, so he would better understand what it would mean to her if she were to give up her career to become his wife.
Will Hazel accept Carlton’s proposal? You will need to read the story to find out.
