An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
I might, this was an interesting listen.
This story is about a Corsican family Ginerva and her father who move to France after Ginerva's mother is killed by the Porter family. Her father then kills all the Porters.
This story is not De Maupassant's story but Honore Balzac's. I checked on Wikipedia.
Ginerva grows up and falls in love with a Napoleonic soldier hiding in her art teacher's attic. He just happens to be the last Porter in his family alive.
Her father finds out and feels that if Ginerva marries him, he must kill them both to be true to his oath of the vendetta.
Listen to see what happens next...
This was a radio play, so several actors played parts including a landlady that sounded like Bette Davis.
Well done acting.
The end. All I can say.
