(p.111) Chapter Eleven Passion in the Pyrenees

This chapter focuses on Aurore's twenty-first birthday, when sisters Jane and Aimee Bazouin, on a visit to Nohant en route to the Pyrenees, had suggested that Aurore join them on holiday at Cauterets and Bagneres. Before leaving, Aurore wrote a letter to her mother, recounting the difficulties they faced on their difficult journey to Spain when she was four years old. Aurore seems to be saying that her mother was thoughtless with her as a child, yet she didn#x0027;t intend to repeat those mistakes with her own child. Upon her arrival at the Pyrenees, the natural beauty of the environment raised Aurore's spirits, and she began to recover her energy for adventure. She soon found an ideal companion in twenty-eight-year-old Zoe Leroy, the daughter of a wealthy Bordeaux wine merchant.
