Feuillet Octave : La Petite Comtesse

'The other day for a treat Charlie got me La Petite Comtesse to read. I never was more delighted with any story. It is so beautifully and pathetically written, but so sad that it made me miserable. I shan't read any more books. For a whole day after I had finished my charming petite comtesse, I found I took not the faintest interest in any of my household duties, and wanted only to sit by the fire and read, read, read, all through my life.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Katey Dickens      Print: Book
