it was ok
bookshelves: audio-book, classic

A fine story, although you know exactly what will happen. I honestly think Sand wrote this as an excuse to record the rural customs of the time and place, and as that goes, I think she was successful. Sand wrote a lot of novels, and it puzzles me why she isn't more read. Apparently George Eliot was a fan at the time. Anyway, as a sort of pastoral, this wasn't bad.

Sylvester "Horace". But I don't remember a thing about it, it was so long ago.

Sylvester But just look at that looong list of books she's written! My oh my! And we just don't hear about her anymore. Shocking!
