Indiana is a novel about love and marriage written by Amantine Aurore Dupin; it was the first work she published under her pseudonym George Sand. Published in April 1832, the novel blends the conventions of romanticism, realism and idealism. As the novel is set partly in France and partly in the French colony of Réunion, Sand had to base her descriptions of the colony, where she had never been, on the travel writing of her friend Jules Néraud.
I ended up donating this book to my local library before moving off to college, but I do wish I still had my copy so I could revisit these dark and complex characters.
George Sand is the pen name of Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin, Baroness Dudevant, a 19th century French novelist and memoirist. Sand is best known for her novels Indiana, Lélia, and Consuelo, and for her memoir A Winter in Majorca, in which she reflects on her time on the island with Chopin in 1838-39. A champion of the poor and working classes, Sand was an early socialist who published her own newspaper using a workers' co-operative and scorned gender conventions by wearing men's clothing and smoking tobacco in public. George Sand died in France in 1876.

Might read another George Sand since this was her first book; she might have gotten better!! I did enjoy that the author inserted herself into the book, occasionally offering her opinion of the goings-on.
GEORGE SAND was born as le Dupin on 1 July 1804
GEORGE SAND was born as le Dupin on 1 July 1804. From her father’s death in 1808, she was raised at Nohant in Berry, France, which was her grandmother’s home and in which she herself would spend the greater part of her life, although she travelled widely and frequently stayed in Paris.
Born re Dupin, George Sand (1804–1876) was a French romantic novelist and memoirist. She was raised in the countryside, and her appreciation for it influenced her work. In 1831, following a divorce, Sand moved to Paris where she wrote articles for the newspaper Le Figaro. She then adopted the pseudonym George Sand, subsequently releasing her novel Indiana, which rejected the notions of the time that a woman must be subservient to her husband-and brought Sand immediate fame. She followed this with two other novels, Lélia and Valentine, which encompassed the same themes.
This is George Sand's first novel
This is George Sand's first novel. Her real name was Amantine (or Amandine) Lucile Dupin, and she later became baroness Dudevant. As an aristocratic woman living in 19th century France, she chose her first novel to be, above all, a realistic work. Indiana is trapped since the age of 16 in a loveless marriage with a rich, much older, man. Her only real friend is her cousin, sir Ralph, who, sometimes, just does things which are- logically- the best for her but- mentally- the worst he could do. She tries to find means of escape.
