The love affair between George Sand and Alfred de Musset is brought to life in fits and bursts of creative impulses, passionate interludes, and emotional blowouts.

Writers who met in 1833, Sand and de Musset were both well-established in their careers.

Unfortunately, Sand was married with two children, and so her affair with de Musset--like her fierce independence, liberalism, and frequent romantic trysts--was considered a scandal.

But as the story unfolds, Sand remains committed to de Musset even as his words and actions spin rapidly and frightfully out of control.
