Descrição

Maria Jameson is having an affair--a passionate, lifechanging affair. She asks: Is it possible to love two men at once? Must this new romance mean an end to love with her husband?For answers, she reaches across the centuries to George Sand, the maverick French novelist who took many lovers. Immersing herself in the life of this revolutionary woman, Maria struggles with the choices women make and wonders if women in the nineteenth century might have been more free, in some ways, than their twenty-first-century counterparts. Here, Rosalind Brackenbury creates a beautiful portrait of the ways in which women are connected across history. Two narratives delicately intertwine--following George through her affair with Frederic Chopin, following Maria through her affair with an Irish professor--and bring us a novel that explores the personal and the historical, the demands of self and the mysteries of the heart. Sharply insightful, 'Becoming George Sand' asks how we make our lives feel vibrant while still acknowledging the gifts of our pasts, and challenges our understanding of love in all its forms--sparkling and new, mature, rekindled, and renewed. Maria Jameson is having an affair -- a passionate, lifechanging entanglement with a younger man. Does this new romance mean an end to the life she has built for herself ? Does it mean an end to being in love with her husband? For answers, she reaches across the centuries to the life and love stories of George Sand, the maverick French novelist who took many lovers, including Frederic Chopin. Immersing herself in the life of this revolutionary woman, Maria struggles with the choices women make and the limitations placed on their lives, then and now. Might women in the nineteenth century have been more free, in some ways, than their twentyfirst-century counterparts? A beautiful portrait of the ways in which women are connected across history, 'Becoming George Sand 'asks how we can make our lives feel vibrant while still acknowledging the gifts of our pasts, and challenges our understanding of love in all its forms. 'What is the price of falling in love?''Read 'Becoming George Sand' for the beauty of the prose, for the intertwined and compelling stories of two brave and piercingly alive women. Read it most of all, though, for its honesty. This is not so much a story about having a love affair as it is a study of the nature of love itself. I was absolutely knocked out by it.'--Elizabeth Berg'This is a beautiful, wise novel. The intertwining of past and present, of France and Scotland, of genius and analysis is done with an ease that disguises the consummate skill of the writing. A lovely book.'--Edmund White'An elegant novel which offers sensitive and witty reflections upon an astonishingly wide range of topics, 'Becoming George Sand' is a great read and its characters are enchanting company.'--Valerie Martin'A wonderful book--filled with wisdom, poetry, and imagery so brilliant I wish I could steal it. This is a treasure!'--Annie Dillard
