Price: $2.99
The story opens in 1836 on the Ile de la Cite, "the very heart of old Paris ... the city's loneliest and most melancholy spot. The waters of the Seine clap against the quay, shrouded in the long shadows of the cathedral as the sun sinks in the west." Thirty-year-old Godefroid, the novel's main character, longs for a new life. He wants to shake off all the "bourgeois ambition" he has been raised with. He has spent down his inheritance working as a journalist and responds to an advertisement in the paper offering rooms to rent. His prospective landlady, Madame de La Chanterie, is an unusual and inspiring aristocrat. ( Madame has four other lodgers, all of them engaged in daily efforts to help the poor people of Paris, many of whom were left destitute after the 1830 revolution.
