Series Description: The story of George Sand, the notorious novelist who sparked controversy as a cigar-smoking, trouser-clad woman who took a succession of lovers insisting that "My body is mine to give and I shall give it to whom I wish." Aurore Dupin, a young French girl just out of convent school, grows up to become the most scandalous woman of nineteenth century Paris. Her Bohemian life-style, affairs with artists, dress of men's clothing and writing activities all combined to make her an outrageous character for her time. Story follows her career, including her relationships with composers Liszt and Chopin.
