Changer l’eau des fleurs by Valérie Perrin

Violette Toussaint is a cemetery guard in a small town in Burgundy. Passing people and regulars come to warm up in her house where laughter and tears mingle with the coffee she offers them. Her daily life is punctuated by their confidence. One day, because a man and a woman have decided to rest together in the cemetery, everything changes. Bonds that unite living and dead are exhumed, and some souls that we thought were black, turn out to be luminous.

 

Valérie Perrin shares with us the intense story of a woman who, despite hardship, stubbornly believes in happiness. With this rare talent of making the ordinary exceptional, Valérie Perrin creates around this woman a world full of poetry and humanity.
