Another magnificent novel written by Gustave Flaubert, telling the story of a girl servant, Felicité.
After her one and only love Théodore leaves her and marry a rich woman, Felicité quits the farm she works on and moves for Pont-l’Évèque where she is hired in a widow’s house as a servant.
Her loyalty has no limits. After Mme Aubain’s children have move away from home and after the unbearable lost of her adored nephew, she receives a parrot as a gift. Then a cheerful relationship starts between them.
