This is not a pleasant book. It is the story of a young French girl of eighteen driven to madness by the bleakness and isolation of her life. In the "closed garden" of her loneliness she conceives an irrational and unrequited love for a stranger who lives next door. Discovering her secret, her tyrannical father takes away her last remaining freedom and she becomes practically a prisoner in her home. And then there occurs a catastrophe which added to the morbid elements of her life completes the ruin of her sadly balanced mind. Translated into the English from the French by Henry Longan Stuart

(Key Words: Julian Green, Andre Maurois, Fiction, Novels, Madness, Henry Longan Stuart).
