Guy de Maupassant's poignant love story of a doomed fascination between a hedonistic French artist and an eccentric English spinster.

Miss Harriet is a mysterious and odd middle-aged lady who has taken up residence in an obscure corner of the French countryside, where she communes with nature and reads odd religious tracts.
