Pierre and Luce

by Romain Rolland

The companionship of Dame Misery is difficult indeed to bear when she is unattended by her frequent hand maidens Love and Hope. During the Great War unhappy France would well nigh have perished saving their presence, although it occurred only in brief intervals. Such an interval Romain Holland has depicted in Pierre and Luce, an idyll of longing love which dares to exult despite the knowledge of certain disaster. In humble circumstances Pierre, a poor student, and Luce, artist of inferior merit, are imbued by Rolland with that sweet gentility which springs from humility and instinctive purity.

Author of the Day

Gen LaGreca
Gen LaGreca is the award-winning author of several Amazon bestsellers that were all written in different genres - or so it seems. Her first book might be a contemporary medical thriller, the second a murder mystery set in the Old South and the third a sci-fi thriller, but they all share similar themes such as freedom, individuality and being ahead of your time.
