About this deal

I was learning a subtle lesson from the intricate lush details - about how to live fully immersed with what so many others have kept silent. So far, it doesn’t seem like much of a story but it is so lyrical, so touching, so sad and so rewarding. Disappointing novels are worse than the stinkers because they break your heart for all the wrong reasons. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Her daily life is lived to the rhythms of the hilarious and touching confidences of random visitors and her colleagues—three gravediggers, three groundskeepers, and a priest. Valérie Perrin gives us something a little different here while exploring grief and loss by using a cemetery as the setting. Violette's routine is disrupted one day by the arrival of police chief Julien Seul, wishing to deposit his mother's ashes on the gravesite of a complete stranger.

Life, death, sadness, joy, love and hate, people, both living and dead that are vividly brought to life. Eloquent, fluctuant, picturesque, poetic descriptive writing that appeals to your senses of sound, smell and taste. My heart opened up to and embraced Violette, dealing with the challenging set of cards that life had dealt her, her compassion in her everyday life of trying to make life easier for the grieving, and the respect and reverence she extends to those beyond the grave. Not that I ever found it well written but some of it was charming, whimsical, ridiculously sentimental. Violette Touissant never knew a family home, having been given up at birth and fostered out over the years.

The grave Julien is looking for, and his mother’s story of clandestine love, is intertwined with Violette’s own secret past. Come una vestale discreta cammina lungo i viali del camposanto, avendo l’intima consapevolezza che un giorno tutti i cimiteri diventeranno giardini.

When the book opens we learn Violette is the caretaker of a cemetery and that her husband has disappeared. Un libro bellissimo, ambientato in un luoghi fuori dal comune, originale, sopra "un ponte" che la protagonista riesce a costruire tra i vivi e quelli che non ci sono più.

Planting, sorting seedlings, pricking out, positioning stakes, hoeing, weeding, taking cuttings, tidying the avenues, both of us leaning toward the earth, hands in the earth, all the time. You see the potential and wish they could be the novel that you know it could be with the right editor and plenty of work thrown into it. He had no idea his mother knew him at all, and Violette helps him with the rituals and process of his task. If you enjoy character-driven stories about betrayal, loss, hope, and love, then this story is for you.Konsjerżce, która pachnie jak różany ogród, zna na pamięć „Regulamin tłoczni win” Johna Irvinga, a wakacje letnie spędza w tej jednej zatoczce w okolicy Marsylii.

No longer as young as she once was, she devotes her time to those who reside inside the gates of the cemetery where she lives, even if they no longer have that luxury. Un romanzo che emoziona perché la vita è protagonista assoluta, a maggior ragione nel luogo dove si celebra il lutto.Her daily life is lived to the rhythms of the hilarious and touching confidences of random visitors and her colleagues.
