Thirty-three years-old and recently divorced, Ren e N r has begun a new life on her own, supporting herself as a music-hall artist. Maxime, a rich and idle bachelor, intrudes on her independent existence and offers his love and the comforts of marriage. A provincial tour puts distance between them and enables Ren e, in a moving series of leters and meditations, to resolve alone the struggle between her need to be loved and her need to have a life and work of her own.

Sidonie Gabrielle Claudine Colette was born in St.-Sauveur-en-Puisaye, France, on January 28, 1873. When she was 16 years old, Colette's family moved to Chatillon-Coliquy where she met and married the ambitious young novelist Henri Gauthier-Villars. Colette and her husband collaborated on a series of stories fashioned after Colette's escapades as a young girl in Burgundy. Under the pseudonym of "Willy," they produced the financially successful series of Claudine novels between 1900-1904. Best remembered for her 1944 novel Gigi, some of Colette's other books include The Vagabond, Cheri, and The Last of Cheri. After divorcing in 1906, Colette supported herself in the music halls of Paris until she married writer Henri de Jouvenel in 1910. Continuing her work as a novelist, Colette also worked as a journalist, contributing to such magazines as Vogue and Le Matin. In 1945, Colette became the first, and only, woman ever elected to the Goncourt Academy. Colette died on August 3, 1954. Colette was given a formal state funeral by the French government.
