George ​Sand's superb novella based upon her upbringing in the French countryside is published afresh in this presentable edition.

We observe the lives of Pere Maurice and his young son-in-law Germain, who is considering finding a new woman to marry. He is presently a single father, his deceased wife having bore three children prior to expiring. His father is enthusiastic about arranging a meeting between a wealthy friend of his – Pere Leonard – whose daughter, Catherine Guerin, is likewise widowed.

Persuaded by his father, who insists that he and his wife cannot manage three children in their home, Germain is given a young and attractive grey mare as well as selection of freshly caught game to present as a dowry to Pere Leonard.
