Overview

George Sand's superb novella based upon her upbringing in the French countryside is published afresh in this presentable edition.

We observe the lives of Pere Maurice and his young son-in-law Germain, who is considering finding a new woman to marry. He is presently a single father, his deceased wife having bore three children prior to expiring. His father is enthusiastic about arranging a meeting between a wealthy friend of his - Pere Leonard - whose daughter, Catherine Guerin, is likewise widowed.

Despite a distinct possibility the union will be a success, and his father's enthusiasm that the three young children will receive a good upbringing under the care of Catherine, Germain is unenthusiastic about marrying again. Persuaded by his father, who insists that he and his wife cannot manage three children in their home, Germain is given a young and attractive grey mare as well as selection of freshly caught game to present as a dowry to Pere Leonard.

An accurate account of rural life in France, The Devil's Pool - also known by its French title La Mare au Diable, draws deeply upon the experiences of author George Sand.
