Format: Paperback
When elderly Dr Minoret settles in his family hometown along with a young female ward, Ursule, his vulture-like relatives are ever in the wings waiting to inherit. They grow to hate Ursule, convinced she is scheming to get 'their' money. Without giving too much away, there is a crime, a touch of the supernatural and a pair of starcrossed lovers.
It had me enthralled from page 1; I can see why Balzac considered it a 'remarkable tour de force'. The characters of the horrible relatives in particular are brilliantly drawn eg 'his face was one of those in which it is hard for the thoughtful observer to see any trace of a soul beneath the florid tints of gross, coarsening flesh'. Recommended.

Although Ursula Mirouet is not of the same caliber as Balzac's major masterpieces like Lost Illusions, Cousine Bette, Eugenie Grandet, and Pere Goriot, it is an enjoyable and rewarding story that can be read within a few days; it moves along at a fairly rapid pace and involves hypnotism, hidden documents, love, a crime, apparitions, and scheming relatives. Of note are the observations Balzac makes on the person with a guilty conscience. Also, a sense of God and justice envelopes this world unlike his other novels.

I have come to love Honore de Balzac rather late in life, discovering his works in my fifties after hearing him referenced in my children's recent performance of The Music Man. Who was this author with the interesting name, when (and what) did he write? As a lover of Dickens, Hardy and Hugo, I was destined to love the characterizations created by Honore de Balzac.
I began by reading the novel Ursula, from Balzac's series of stories, The Human Comedy.

I really enjoyed this novel, even though (or because?) Balzac shows himself here from a very religious side, which is usually not his thing. I highly recommend this book to all Balzac fans.
