"A Lost Lover" by Sarah Orne Jewett

This is a touching, unadorned story about loneliness and compassion. A young woman comes to live with her elderly aunt, and becomes intrigued by the story of the old woman's lost lover from years ago. The young woman, too, has a lover who is far away in the navy, and she feels compassion for her cousin's loss and loneliness.
