This chapter tells the story of Sophie and Aurore's journey to Paris. With Madame Dupin no longer in the way, Sophie descended on Nohant to protest Rene Vallet de Villeneuve's role as Aurore's guardian, an arrangement that had been made before Madame Dupin's death. The trip to Paris was rushed, so much so, that all Aurore had been able to take with her from Nohant were a few books, her chambermaid, and her dog. Mother and daughter took up temporary residence with Aunt Lucie Marechal before moving into Madame Dupin's apartment on the elegant rue Neuve-des-Mathurins. Now that they were living together, Sophie mounted a virulent attack on Aurore, based on gossip she had heard about her behavior in La Chatre.
