George Sand. "Once my heart was captured, reason was shown the door, deliberately and with a sort of frantic joy. I accepted everything, I believed everything, without struggle, without suffering, without regret, without false shame. How can one blush for what one adores?"

Dédié à Chopin, ce bref roman champêtre a un charme inégalé. George Sand a vu le beau dans le simple. Elle chante, quelquefois en patois, les joies de l'amour, de l'enfance et du travail de la terre. Beaucoup d'amour et un peu d'idéalisme sont ses secrets.

Félix Nadar, George Sand. French writer and intellectual who wore sometimes dressed as a man and had an affair with Chopin. She also wrote some amazing books!
