Villette (version 3)

Book cover
By: (1816-1855)

A quiet, self-reliant, intelligent, 23-year-old woman, Lucy has, as Miss Ginevra Fanshawe asserts, "no attractive accomplishments – no beauty." She seems to have no living relatives. Though usually reserved and emotionally self-controlled, Lucy has strong feelings and affections for those whom she really values. She even sincerely cares for the giddy Ginevra, albeit in a blunt, curmudgeonly fashion. She is a firm Protestant and denounces Roman Catholicism as false . The novel is initially set in the English countryside, and later follows Lucy Snowe to the fictional Belgian town of Villette, a Gothic town where the majority of the action takes place. Villette is modelled upon the city of Brussels and is set in the fictional kingdom of Labassecour . "Labassecour" is the French word for farmyard.. - Summary by Wikipedia

Jane Eyre is my favorite book, and this book was great, too! Multiple readers, most of which were great, but not understanding French did put a little bit of a damper on the story for me since French phrases were used often throughout it.
