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. <br/><br/>This story is not De Maupassant's story but Honore Balzac's. I checked on Wikipedia. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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.<br/> <br/>Listen to see what happens next...
What about the narrator’s performance did you like?
This was a radio play, so several actors played parts including a landlady that sounded like Bette Davis. <br/><br/>Well done acting.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The end. All I can say.
