Indeed Chopin was one of the few people who always stood by George Sand's daughter, and be paid a terrible price for his loyalty. Victor Hugoin the eulogy he gave at her funeral, said "the lyre was within her. They had two daughters together.

This is also, of course, a tacit admission that we have her to thank for keeping him alive for so long and well enough to compose. Being an utter history nerd, I loved the extensive author's note which explained what pieces of Zenobia's life were taken from fact, and which were more fictional. Sand had two actual children, Maurice and Solange, in residence, complicating matters. George Sand had a notorious and conflict-ridden relationship with the writer Alfred de Musset, from to The tipping point in their relationship involved her daughter Solange.

Solange, Sand's daughter, undoubtedly stirred up a hornets' nest with her poisonous tongue. While there were many contemporary critics of her comportment, many people accepted her behaviour until they became shocked with the subversive tone of her novels. In addition to being comfortable, Sand's male attire enabled her to circulate more freely in Paris than most of her female contemporaries, and gave her increased access to venues from which women were often barred, even women of her social standing. However, soon enough Vasco's workers abandon the farm. Some of this tradition is legendary, some historical, but Hawker has done an excellent job of bringing us a compelling story that stays within the historical realities and constructs the gaps in a plausible way founded in the evidence. It had been Sand's idea that a trip south would cure Chopin of his chestiness.
