♦ Description : “Alone in her house beaten by the winter winds, a woman who has not a few months to live writes to her granddaughter. It wants to tighten the links distended by the vagaries of existence. For that, she has only words. Words of love, words that lead him to evoke his own life. She recounts her lonely childhood, her marriage of reason, the tragic death of her daughter, and speaks for the first time of the only man she loved. Fifteen letters to say that you have to trust destiny and listen to your heart …”
“This unadorned story moves with the simplicity of its message.” Pascale Frey – LiRE”
