Big image


The characters are Madame Loisele and Madame Forestier.


The setting is in Paris in the late 1800s.


Madame Loisele borrows Madame Forestier's necklace and ends up losing it. Madame Loisele doesn't tell Madame Forestier. Madame Loisele goes to the jewelers trying to find a necklace to replace it. After looking and looking she finds one worth 40,000 francs but gets it for 36,000. Loisele spends the next multiple years living in poverty trying to pay it off. Then after years of not seeing Madame Forestier, Madame Loisele finally tells her about how she lost the necklace. And Madame Loisele finds out she's paying more than the original necklace was.


The theme is that someone else's life is better than our own.
