INSPIRED BY NATURE

A Country Year by Sue Hubell

Having left everything behind to become a beekeeper, the writer shares the story of her life journey, a story anchored in reality in the heart of nature.

The desire to change her everyday life, with her husband, compels her to move to the mountain and build a bee farm there. It is then that she discovers the endless nature, full of lessons. Gradually, the ecosystems reveal themselves to her. Everything is immense, rich and vast.

This book is an escape into the great outdoors, an exploration of trees, birds and the living.

À dos d’oiseaux by Sarah Marquis

An archaeological mystery, a wilderness adventure and travels around the world: the author takes us on a thrilling journey.

The explorer’s first novel is an easy read and we are soon engrossed in its fast-paced action. Page after page, a true path of initiation is revealed.

The dynamic characters inhabit a world that combines detective fiction and fairy tales. This book will help you escape.

THE CLASSICS

The Lover by Marguerite Duras

Marguerite Duras, an icon of the French Roman Nouveau style, takes us back in time to the 1930s, on the banks of the Mekong, to a society that was still very traditional.

Driven by personal memories of her adolescence, her intimate writing tells a powerful and complex love story.

This book, which won the Goncourt Prize in 1984, takes us on a journey and is imbued with authentic emotions.

Corinne, or Italy by Germaine de Staël

In this book, which laid the foundations for feminism, the talented heroine discovers the warm beauty of Italy through her travels.

The characters’ colourful personalities are an opportunity to compare the English, Italian and French mores of the early Romantic period.

Exiled to Switzerland by Napoleon, who considered her powerful and politically dangerous, Madame de Staël was a leading figure of French Romanticism.

CONTEMPORARY WRITERS

Feux by Perrine Le Querrec

With fire as the main theme of her work, the author reveals in her books the power of this transformative element.

She gently drives us to reflect and experience her profound and generous poetry.

It is a journey through History, culture and human ideas. A perfect read to become caught up in the magic of words.

Le sourire contagieux des croissants au beurre by Camille Andrea

This novel is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and a gentle way to start relaxing.

It tells the story of a successful businessman who is doing well in life, until a former hot dog vendor offers him a million-dollar coffee.

That coffee leads to travels and a profound quest to reconnect with oneself. This book makes for a great summer read.

Enjoy these books and feel free to share your thoughts on them.
