Memoirs of Miss Sidney Biddulph by Frances Chamberlaine Sheridan

Memoirs of Miss Sidney Biddulph by Frances Chamberlaine Sheridan

Sidney and Cecilia are best childhood friends who are forced to part for 5 years. In that interval, Sidney Bidulph – an undoubtedly good and dutiful woman – writes to her friend about everything: her marriage, her children, her other friendships and, above all, about her great love for Mr. Faulkland. In an amazing and unforgettable way, this book shows us that the road to happiness is not always clear – and that sometimes doing what seems to be right is not really the right thing to do. With Rachel’s lovely reading, we see her – Sidney Bidulph – as she was meant to be, and as she really is.

Farewell

Farewell by Honoré de Balzac

Farewell by Honoré de Balzac

In his startling and tragic novella Farewell, Balzac adds to the 19th century’s literature of the hysterical woman: sequestered, confined in her madness; mute, or eerily chanting in her moated grange. The first Mrs Rochester lurks in the wings; the Lady of Shalott waits for the shadowy reflection of the world outside to shatter her illusion. Freud’s earliest patients will soon enter the waiting-room in their turn.

Whilst out hunting two friends come across a strange waif-like woman shut up in a decaying chateau which one of them dubs “the Palace of the Sleeping Beauty”. Soon we are dragged back to the terrible masculine reality of the 1812 retreat of Napoleon’s army from Moscow and the grotesque massacre that was to traumatize the heroine, parting her from her lover.

Their reunion is more desperate still, as the earlier event is recreated in a bizarre and vain attempt to root out madness and compel the return of happiness…
