(Le rêve)

The Rougon-Macquart

Written as a "passport to the Academy," this novel stands alone among the Rougon-Macquart series for its pure, idyllic grace.

Angélique, a daughter of Sidonie Rougon (La Curée), had been deserted by her mother, and was adopted by a maker of ecclesiastical embroideries, who with his wife lived and worked under the shadow of an ancient cathedral. In this atmosphere the child grew to womanhood, and as she fashioned the rich embroideries of the sacred vestments she had a vision of love and happiness which was ultimately realized, though the realization proved too much for her frail strength...

The vast cathedral with its solemn ritual dominates the book and colours the lives of its characters.

(J. G. Patterson
