Married Maria is having an affair with Sean who is also married. Each time they meet in the bookshop where she is obsessing about George Sand. Suddenly she decides to write a book about her idol when her husband confronts her about her affair. Soon her life is in free fall and she wonders how different life today compared to the sexually free time period of George Sand. At times this novel is a beautiful memorial to the famous writer but then if digresses to the maudlin. And Maria is such a lack luster character - things just keep happening to her and she does nothing but read George Sand's letters and biography!
