Laura: A Journey Into the Crystal

While working in a small geological museum, Alexis Hartz meets his cousin Laura, who has discovered a way to enter a geode. Travelling through a vast and glittering landscape of brilliant crystals, Alexis falls passionately in love with Laura. But when they return to the ordinary world, only friendship remains. He yearns for the perfect world of the crystals, and returning there becomes a perilous obsession. But is the crystal world as real as it seems, or is his mind succumbing to its dark powers? This little known work by George Sand is a fantastical novel in the truest sense of the word.
