The short story, "A Legacy Through Carnations," details the unique experiences of two very different women, Martha Carrier and Lillian Carrier. Martha is subjected to the religious prosecution of seventeen-century Salem, whereas Lillian is abused by her twenty-first century boyfriend. Despite the gap between their stories, the women are connected through time and space by the injustices they face at the hands of men. Thus, the short story aims to show that modern women still face many abuses and hardships, even if they don't seem quite as apparent as those of the past.
