This book is a literary phenomenon, unique in its genre. It’s the complex story of a woman, Violette Toussaint, with a troubled past and a mystery affecting her life. By chance she becomes the guardian of a small cemetery in Burgundy (France). She’s alone there for years and through her way to tell what happens when the gate is closed we discover a second life inside this – usually – scary place. Behind each tomb there are stories. Violette changes water to the flowers, getting to know many aspects between life and death. But her life is not complete, a sad story of the past comes back together with an unexpected love. This book is open to many interpretations, it raises different feelings, not necessarily sad, masterfully written, it has the capacity to make us reflect about a universal world which can start from “death” into a new perspective of the lives of everyone. To be read, at least, once in life.
