Synopses & Reviews
Recapturing childhood can awaken deeply-buried memories that are capable of forever changing a life. Antoine Rey cannot seem to stop replaying a recent series of dramatic events: his divorce, his dead-end job, separating from his children
His entire future blown up in smoke, he is left with only his past. Perhaps unconsciously triggered by this, for her 40th birthday, he surprises his sister Mélanie with a trip to Noirmoutier Island, their childhood vacationing spot. After the worldwide success of La llave de Sarah, Tatiana de Rosnay builds, through an evocative narrative, a sweeping and moving novel where each page is softly illuminated by nostalgia and sharply shaped by intrigue.
