"Follows the fortunes of a young, gauche, and fervent Catholic priest who is a misfit in the world and in his church, creating scandal and disharmony wherever he turns. His insight into the inner lives of others and his perception of the workings of Satan in the everyday are gifts that fatefully come into play in the priest's chance encounter with a young murderess, whose life and emotions he can see with a dreadful clarity, and whose destiny inexorably becomes entangled with his own."--Page 4 of cover

The Chouans by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

17 editions published between 1972 and 1995 in French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1799, dans les derniers jours du directoire, à la veille du coup d'Etat de Bonaparte (18 brumaire, an VIII), la guerre civile continue à sévir dans les départements de l'Ouest et spécialement en Bretagne. Les contre-révolutionnaires fidèles à la royauté, soutenus par les prêtres et encadrés par des nobles rentrés clandestinement de l'émigration, combattent la République avec la sauvagerie du désespoir. Les Chouans - ainsi nommés parce que leur cri ralliement est celui de la chouette - harcèlent les troupes du général Hoche, " pacificateur " de la région. Embuscades, répression et tueries - tel est le climat de ce roman placé par Balzac parmi ses Scènes de la vie militaire et dont l'action (inspirée de faits historiques réels) se déroule dans la région de Fougère. Il met aux prises la coriacité paysanne, incarnée par le terrible Marche-à-Terre, et les vertus martiales que représente le rude et brave commandant Hulot ; cet affrontement ne doit pas faire oublier les évolutions plus troubles auxquelles se livrent dans l'ombre quatre personnages, mi-espions, mi-mondains : un agent du ministre de la Police Fouché, une jeune femme très belle, un soi-disant marrin et sa prétendue mère. Entre eux, la partie va se jouer serrée, au cours de laquelle l'héroïsme, le machiavélisme et l'amour vont avoir leur mot à dire. La mort aussi est au rendez-vous. Et peut-être que, sous le rapport de la violence, les choses ont malheureusement peu changé. L'époque, pourtant, était assez différente de la nôtre : en ce temps-là, on va le voir, un homme n'hésitait pas à tenir, dans son poing, un charbon ardent, pour obtenir d'une femme simplement le droit de lui parler ! (Payot)

"Set in Lombardy during the Spanish occupation of the late 1620s, The Betrothed tells the story of two young lovers, Renzo and Lucia, prevented from marrying by the petty tyrant Don Rodrigo, who desires Lucia for himself. Forced to flee, they are then cruelly separated, and must face many dangers including plague, famine and imprisonment, and confront a variety of strange characters the mysterious Nun of Monza, the fiery Father Cristoforo and the sinister Unnamed' in their struggle to be reunited. A vigorous portrayal of enduring passion, The Betrothed's exploration of love, power and faith presents a whirling panorama of seventeenth-century Italian life and is one of the greatest European historical novels"--Page 4 of cover
