Laura P. said:
An engrossing book about life and death. Antoine and Melanie’s mother died when they were children but what really happened back in 1974? A trip back to Noirmoutier where the family summered back in the 70’s nudges loose some memories and clues to what happened. Antoine investigates, determined to find the truth, while Melanie, after a close brush with death herself, prefers another path. Good story, well told and quite satisfying despite not everything resolved at the end.
