walls or under isolated trees. She was not ignorant, as girls of well-to-do families are--for the animals had instructed her;--but her reason and her instinct of honour kept her from falling. Her resistance exasperated Theodore's love and so in order to satisfy it (or perchance ingenuously), he offered to marry her. She would not believe him at first, so he made solemn promises. But, in a short time he mentioned a difficulty; the previous year, his parents had purchased a substitute for him; but any day he might be drafted and the prospect of serving in the army alarmed him greatly. To Felicite his cowardice appeared a proof of his love for her, and her devotion to him grew stronger. When she met him, he would torture her with his fears and his entreaties. At last, he announced that he was going to the prefect himself for information, and would let her know everything on the following Sunday, between eleven o'clock and midnight.

When the time grew near, she ran to meet her lover.

But instead of Theodor


Average Rating of 4 from 2 reviews: ****

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.)


Also known as "A Simple Heart". A beautiful and elegant story of a simple girl with a pure heart and filled with love, even when downtrodden. Poor and uneducated, often unseen and forgotten. It can bring a tear to your eye! Well worth reading!
