The Unruly Passions of Eugenie R

(2012)
A novel by

 
 
Love and war converge in this lush, epic story of a young woman's struggle with life and love during and after the Second Empire (1860-1871), an era that was absinthe-soaked, fueled by railway money and prostitution, and transformed by cataclysmic social upheaval.

Eugenie R., born in France's foie gras country, follows the man she loves to Paris but soon finds herself marooned, pregnant, and penniless. She gives birth to a daughter she is forced to abandon and spends the next ten years fighting to get her back. An outcast, Eugenie takes to the streets, navigating her way up from ruin and charting the treacherous waters of sexual commerce. Along the way she falls in love with an artist, a woman, and a revolutionary. The capital, the gleaming center of art and civilization in Europe, is enjoying its final years of wanton prosperity before galloping headlong into the Franco-Prussian War. For Eugenie it is a conflicted landscape--grisly, evocative, and addictive. As the gates of the city close against the advancing army, Eugenie must make a decision between past and present--between the people she loves most.

The Unruly Passions of Eugenie R. is a testament to the power of love, friendship, and the art of self-creation.
