A stunning debut novel in the vein of Irene Nemirovsky's 'Suite Francaise' from journalist Hélène Grémillon. In 1970's Paris, Camille receives an anonymous letter narrating events from pre-war France. She feels sure it was meant for someone else. Then more letters start to arrive….They tell of the unlikely friendship between village girl Annie and bourgeois Madame M., who encourages the girl's passion for art. But when Annie offers to carry a child for her infertile friend, their lives become destructively entwined, with repercussions that are still felt decades later.
