I really hope this helps!

In addition to being a fine example of local color writing, “A White Heron” is also an excellent initiation story with a universal theme. Through the character of Sylvia, the “little woods girl,” Sarah Orne Jewett addresses the dilemma that occurs when personal values conflict with emotional needs and making an ethical decision that is sure to cause pain.
