    Paperback å La Rabouilleuse Epub ☆ rabouilleuse pdf, La Rabouilleuse PDF/EPUBOn completing La Rabouilleuse Balzac’s thirty third in his series La Comédie Humaine the thought that flew through my head was “That is an accomplished piece of writing”not that I loved it I was instead impressed by what the author had achieved First of all there are many details and many strands and they come together well Secondly as a work of historical fiction describing the era of the Bourbon Restoration the novel is exemplary The story is set both in Paris and Issoudun of the Loire Valley primarily during the 1820s and 1830s One of the central characters fought under Napoleon and was a staunch follower He is a brave soldier but

    Paperback å La Rabouilleuse Epub ☆ rabouilleuse pdf, La Rabouilleuse PDF/EPUBThe novel begins in 1792 with a long and rather dull preamble givinge history to the Rouget family and as it happens this is vital to understanding the last part of the tale Agathe Rouget is the daughter of a rather nasty doctor that seems to be putting it mildly and Balzac laces the tale of Doctor Rouget and his unfortunate wife with innuendos While Rouget a petty domestic tyrant dotes on his son and encourages Jean Jacques’ very worst behaviour he loathes Agathe as he suspects that she was fathered by another man So when an opportunity arises to get rid of Agathe the vindictive Rouget carts off his young daughter to Paris and the home of her maternal uncle a grocer named Desgoings Unfortunately the grocer falls foul of the guillotine within a week of Agathe’s arrival but then Bridau a minor official falls in love with Agathe and
