George Sand was an incredibly prolific author, and published many varied works over her career. Leone Leoni, first published in France in 1835, was released in this particular English translation by George Burnham Ives in 1900. The novel - or, rather, novella - is set in the early nineteenth century, and focuses upon the title character, as well as a young Belgian woman named Juliette Ruyter, and her 'protector, the noble Spaniard' Aleo Bustamente.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. This is the story of the abusive relationship of Juliette, a woman who literally cannot live without Leoni, the man who has ruined the her life and that of her family, and Busstamente, the man who adores her. Juliette lives in torment, at first in supposed ignorance of the dastardly deeds of her lover Leoni, and then stays with him in spite of them.

I thought it was really annoying that this guy was always described as brilliant, highly intelligent and charming, because there were hardly any examples of those qualities. It would have been better to make him act or use more dialogues to let the reader make his own conclusions about him.

Stupid, disgusting, etc.
This story sucks!
But worst of all, I found myself, enjoying in some chapters, and I feel guilt for it.

I read George Sand for the first time, I really enjoyed the book. The narration was so fluent, the entire story flows smoothly. I loved the passionate female character Juliette.

Just finished this for book club. I liked it. It reminded me of Edgar Allen Poe. I'll save my other comments for book club.

A brilliant little book. Sand leaves the socialist tinge of her rural tales to the side for a bit to tell a tale of the madness of love. The ending was perfection.
