CROWNED BY THE FRENCH ACADEMY
Madame Desvarennes has built her great business in the old
mansion on Rue Saint Dominique -- first a bakery, then a
flour-milling empire that has made her among the most wealthy and
respected business owners in Paris. Everything she has aimed for in
life, she has achieved, after having arrived into the world without
the least advantage.
Yet as she sits at Christmas beside the fire with her husband,
she feels desolate and lonely -- for an emptiness has been growing
in her . . . and now she sees a vision: a child, crawling near the
warmth of the flames
Fate brings her an orphaned child, Jeanne -- and soon
thereafter, the wealthy couple are surprised at last by the arrival
of their own baby -- another girl, whom they name Michelins. Time
passes for the mother and two daughters . . . and into their lives
enters a man whose ways will affect all three -- although whether
through goodness or villainy, none can agree
A bestseller of nineteenth-century France, "Serge Panine"
launched the career of novelist Georges Ohnet (1848-1918).
