It starts with young Monsieur Charles Bovary.  Do not be confused.  Mme. Emma Bovary will arrive shortly.

    This just in: The first Madame Bovary you meet is not The Madame Bovary. Nor is the second.

      Yes, thank you for the clarification. Perhaps the book should have been named “The Mesdames Bovary”.
