|Plot Summary of Restless Heart|
|""Restless Heart" is the story about a young girl from the lower social classes, Therese Tarde, who falls in love with a young man of the upper classes, Florent France. At first she wants to show him that she is not interested in his money and tries to protect him from her disreputable family. Soon the ease of his life, his happiness, his talent and goodness begin to make her feel unworthy. He is too perfect and perfection is something she cannot deal with. Her feelings of her own imperfection make the prospect of life with him impossible."
