Item description for Laura: Journey Into The Crystal by George Sand & Sue Dyson...

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 passionately falls 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 to it becomes a perilous obsession. But is the crystal world as real as it seems or is his mind playing tricks on him?

Written in 1864, and now in a new translation by Sue Dyson, this little known work by George Sand is a fantastical novel in the truest sense of the word; a strange tale with echoes of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Conan Doyle's Lost World and even Candide and Frankenstein.
