The Story of an Hour Summary Because Louise Mallard suffers from a heart condition, her sister Josephine gently and carefully gives her the news of her husband’s death. Mr. Richards, a close friend of her husband, Brentley Mallard, and the first to learn of the tragic railroad accident that claimed Mallard’s life, has accompanied Josephine to help soften what they know will be a cruel blow. Louise falls, sobbing, into her sister’s arms, then retreats upstairs to her room. Josephine, who begs Louise to let her in, would be shocked if she knew what thoughts were racing through her sister’s mind. Indeed, although she initially hesitates to admit to herself that she is not distressed, she begins to repeat one word: “free.” Finally, she yields to her sister’s repeated pleas to unlock her bedroom door.
