it was amazing

Read in a translation entitled 'The Devil's Pool'. Very touching love story that reminded me in a way of Eliot's Adam Bede (which of course came later) - glorifying rural life and lore and the simplicity and honesty of an extended peasant family in a close-knit community. According to my bio of George Eliot, she devoured many of Sands' novels at an early age so there can be little coincidence in the above noticed similarities. This is my first exposure to Sand but will not be the last!
