Look inside the book:
A few months ago, in Paris, at ten in the morning of the twenty-first day of January, nineteen hundred and six, two automobiles drew up before the parish church, Saint-Denis de la Chapelle, whose historic walls, fifteen centuries since, enclosed during life the intrepid and holy patroness of France, Geneviève de Nanterre; before whose shrine, five centuries since, the glorious virgin Savior of the realm, Jeanne d'Arc, passed an entire day in prayer; whose sacred aisles were ever the avenues for the royal feet in ancient times, on the termination of the coronation ceremony.
...His wanderings conducted him back to the Thames, from whose turbid surface towered the masts of many vessels as they rocked at their moorings, His eyes rested vacantly on the waters, spangled with reflections of the stars overhead, as he recalled the history of his passion for this unknown woman and his first meeting with her in the home of Elois Adhemar, the miller on the de Brezé estate.
About Emilia Pardo Bazán, the Author:
Pardo Bazán was born in A Coruña, a city in the region of Galicia, Spain, and the culture of that area was incorporated into some of her most popular novels, including Los pazos de Ulloa ('The Manors of Ulloa') and its sequel, La madre naturaleza ('Mother Nature').
...Probably the best of Emilia Pardo Bazán's work is embodied in Los pazos de Ulloa (1886), the painfully exact history of a decadent aristocratic family, as notable for its portraits of types like Nucha and Julián as for its creation of characters like those of the political bravos, Barbacana and Trampeta.
