The first novel that George Sand wrote without a collaborator, Indiana is not only a romance but also a powerful plea for change in the inequitable French marriage laws of the time, for better education for women, and for a new attitude to their position in society. Naomi Schor's introductionexplores attitudes to Sand in her own time as well as more recent feminist responses, and it examines the powerful and complex patterns of imagery and relationships in the novel.
Sylvia Raphael has translated Balzac's Eugenie Grandet (1990) and Cousin Bette (1992) for World's Classics. Naomi Schor is a well-known expert in both Romance Languages/Literature and in European feminism. She is William Hanes Wannamaker Professor of Romance Studies and Literature at Duke University.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An interesting romance This story is a mix of realism and romance - if you enjoy both, you will undoubtedly love this book. If you are not a fan of either particularly, or if you prefer more than the other, then I think this book can still be enjoyable, but it is a bit ridiculous and not amazingly written, though certainly, the prose has its strong moments.
