Une Fille D'Eve (A Daughter of Eve)
by Honoré de Balzac

Une Fille d'Eve (A Daughter of Eve) is a 1838 novel which belongs to the Scenes from Private Life (Scènes de la Vie Privée) subseries of La Comédie Humaine.

Ferdinand du Tillet, one of the richest bankers in Paris but a man of no family, married the much younger Marie-Eugenie de Granville, daughter of a peer of France. Du Tillet is unscrupulous in both his business and his private life.

Marie-Eugenie's sister is Angelique-Marie de Granville, now Madame de Vandenesse. Angelique-Marie is rather fearfully in awe of her husband due to his past but takes notice of the writer Raoul Nathan. Nathan determines to make the most of her interest.

As usual, some characters will be familiar from other novels of Balzac. Felix de Vandenesse was one of the stars of The Lily of the Valley. Eugene de Rastignac was a principal character in Le Père Goriot. The complete list appears at the end of this book. This is one of the under-appreciated titles of Balzac.
