Eudora Whelty (1909-2001)

Lily Daw and the Three Ladies

From The Collected Stories of Eudora Whelty, (1983), Penguin Books

Lily is an orphan, and not that bright.  The Ladies of the town have taken it upon themselves to look out for her future well being.  Should she take a job in service in Ellisville, or should she marry the xylophone player from the travelling band, whom they assume is only after one thing and is long gone.
