This chapter describes excitement about Aurore's new novel Indiana, which swept over Paris in the spring of 1832. Unfortunately, her novel came at a time when the capital was facing a massive cholera epidemic. The political situation in Paris was chaotic. Aurore had taken Solange with her to Paris, and as they strolled in the Luxembourg Gardens, they suddenly found themselves in the midst of the uprising. Solange was terrified by the thunderous drum rolls of the charging brigade and the panic that broke loose all around her. When Solange began to scream, Aurore tried in vain to calm her and then hastily retreated to the city streets, only to find that frightened storekeepers had barred their doors against the demonstration.

Keywords:   cholera epidemic, Aurore's new novel, Indiana, political situation, Luxembourg Gardens, uprising
