Fire In The Blood by Irene Nemirovsky

Fire In The Blood

Written in 1941, Fire in the Blood is a novella examining the lives of rural French villagers – contrasting the passions of the young with the notable absence of those same passions in the old.  It was an interesting premise, but unfortunate Nemirovsky didn’t have the opportunity to explore this further in a more expanded novel.  With her death by the Nazis in the Auschwitz concentration camp, we are left with few of her works.
