A Simple Soul

by Gustave Flaubert

It's story of a simple girl 'Felicite' who, unlike to her devotional belief and pure love for everyone:her mistress(Madam Aubain), parrot 'Loulou', Virginia and Paul(Children of a Widow 'Aubain'), Theodore(Her first love), Victor(Her nephew), has been destroyed in her heart either by their parting or death or betrayal and at last embraces death.She has no other world than of affection and bond, for she had no family of own.This Novel portrays a world for innocence, and fate of those who are simple in their 'soul' but have no human-bond ever lasting.You'll not be tired reading this.It may also give information on Christian culture and ceremonies:Altar, holy bread, etc, but there is no reason to not try for anti- or non-Christians, for 'Simple Soul' has more to aspiring writers and readers of novels...(Universalman / Kosovo.)

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
