Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Like every other woman, she had had an affair of the heart. Her father, who was a mason, was killed by falling from a scaffolding. Then her mother died and her sisters went their different ways; a farmer took her in, and while she was quite small, let her keep cows in the fields. She was clad in miserable rags, beaten for the slightest offense and finally dismissed for a theft of thirty sous which she did not commit.

this was a sweet fast read that gave insight to"a simple soul". Felicete's devotition to everyone around her reminds us that courage and purity exists where we least expect it.
