Wanting, needing, and even begging for love, Aurore Dupin turns to writing as a way to express the feelings boiling inside her. To be accepted as an author in a man’s world she trades her dresses and petticoats for trousers and overcoats, and becomes George Sand.

Like any child, Aurore looks to her mother for comfort and love, especially after the loss of her baby brother and beloved father. This turbulent relationship sets the tone for the entirety of Aurore’s life, where she searches endlessly for that one perfect everlasting love. Her heart bursts with joy and drowns in sorrow as she loves and loses many times over. What she does find is a well-spring of inspiration to fuel a writing career which spans decades.

Artists are often known for their mercurial personalities, and it seems George Sand is no different. There is a childlike quality in the way George opens her heart to so many, even though she suffers devastating losses. It is those tempestuous love affairs which become fuel for the creative fire in her soul. I found this depiction of her life to be almost magical, brimming with family, friends, and lovers, as well as an abundance of heartache and joy.
