We're off to the Alps for an old French story of love and loss this week. With a special dedication. This one is a real bucolic gem and I think you're gonna love it. It's A Forest Betrothal (Part 1) by Erckmann-Chatrian. Part 2 is coming next week.
To read A Forest Betrothal and other French short stories, you can download the book for free at Project Gutenberg. https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10577
