She died in 1942.
Reviews
"Beautiful. . . . An enjoyable . . . portrait of manners from the first half of the last century."
--The Washington Post Book World

"Courageous, uncompromising. . . . An entire world, vividly rendered, emerges from [these] pages."
--Newsday

"An almost perfect miniature, a tale of divided loves and loyalties set in an insular rural French village."
--O, Oprah Magazine

"[Némirovsky] coolly explores the heat of passions old and new. . . leav[ing] readers profoundly satisfied with this portrait of la vieille France...so manifestly dear to her."
--San Francisco Chronicle
