Excerpt
Excerpt: It was nine o?clock. The little town of Vauchamp, dark and silent, had just retired to bed amid a chilly No vember rain. In the Rue des Recollets, one of the narrowest and most deserted streets of the district of Saint- Jean, a single window was still alight on the third floor of an old house, from whose damaged gutters torrents of water were falling into the street. Mme Burle was sitting up before a meager fire of vine stocks, while her little grandson Charles pored over his lessons by the pale light of a lamp.
