Excerpt from L'Abbé Constantin

The son of a French poet and dramatist, Ludovic Halévy was born at Paris on January 1, 1834. He was educated at the Lycée Louis le Grand, and after leaving school entered the civil service. He began in the State Department, where he served from 1852 to 1858, was then transferred to take charge of a bureau in the Ministry of Algeria, and later to the Corps Législatif. In the meantime he had been devoting himself to literary pursuits, and, when his success as a writer for the stage was established, he left the public service. From 1861 to 1875 he furnished the librettos for Offenbach's music. In 1877 he began to work in collaboration with Henri Meilhac, and they produced many theatrical pieces which have been represented on the stage of the Grand Opéra, the Comédie Française, and the Opéra Comique. Some of these are: Le Fandango, 1877; Le Petit Duc, 1878; Le Mari de la Débutante, 1879; Le Petit Hôtel, 1879; La Petite Mère, 1880. In 1884 Halévy was elected a member of the French Academy, and gave his discours de réception in 1886. His personality is seen best in his prose works, - in his novels and short stories. Some of these are: Marcel, 1876; Les Petites Cardinal, 1880; Un Mariage d'Amour, 1881; La Famille Cardinal, 1883; Criquette, 1883; Deux Mariages, 1883; Princesse, 1883. In 1872 he published his personal recollections of the siege of Paris under the title of L'Invasion. He died in 1908.

L'Abbe Constantin first appeared in the Revue des deux Mondes in 1882 and was received with the greatest favor.

I found the book a good read and I enjoy many of the authors other books, and the characters were fun and entertaining. The story line flowed at a decent pace. But ... she needs a new editor already. Horrible grammar flubs that make you give a double take at certain parts. And is the only reason I can't give this book higher then 3 stars.

I'm not one for turn of the century books but this one captivated me from the start. I purchased it because of the author wanting to read more of her work but was immediately drawn in just like all her other books. I'll always buy whatever her mind produces. Outstanding writer!

This was a good book. I did get a little bored near the middle, but it was mostly due to the leading lady's behavior. She just started to annoy me after a while.
