Om Eugenie Grandet
pubOne.info present you this new edition.

Within these houses there is, perhaps, the silence of the cloister, the barrenness of moors, the skeleton of ruins; life and movement are so stagnant there that a stranger might think them uninhabited, were it not that he encounters suddenly the pale, cold glance of a motionless person, whose half- monastic face peers beyond the window-casing at the sound of an unaccustomed step.
