Overview

Originally published in 1901, this early translation of the French writer, George Sand, is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. Set in the region of Berry, France, Sand depicts a way of pre-industrial rural life that was soon to change. Charting the fortune of Germain, a 28 year old widower, Sand provides the reader with a glimpse into the traditions of rural France in a style not dissimilar to that of Thomas Hardy. Sand’s novella is a fascinating novel of the period and still an interesting read for any social historian today. A lively text and a well-developed plot make this a thoroughly enjoyable read. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
