Fresh Water for Flowers is Valérie Perrin’s English debut and is one that is sure to place her name on the tongue of many. Fresh Water For Flowers by Valérie Perrin will provide a reader with many moments of comfort, bliss, and a real reading delight. Diz-se que não se deve julgar um livro pela capa, mas há um género de estética que me afasta imediatamente de um livro, que é o da(s) mulher(es) de costas, indício inevitável de um dramalhão ou de uma pieguice. For Europa Editions, Hildegarde Serle has three novels by Christelle Dabos, including the best-selling A Winter's Promise .

The protagonist Violette is a cemetery keeper who lives alone in a house on the premises of the cemetery she looks after. Philippe Toussaint is not a character that I liked, but Perrin builds him in such a way that I feel that I know him, that I’ve met him. Violette and her husband Philippe experience a tragedy that adds a mystery element to the story, and we start to see more into his character and motivations. What may on the surface of it appear gloomy and morose, in Perrin's hands is an appealing indulgence in nature, food and drink, and, above all, friendships.

At 22 percent I stated "This book has won me over but is absolutely devastating me over and fuckin over and fuckin over again. Although I read the English version I felt steeped in the French way of life, its philosophy, culture, and food.

That had me thinking about when life is too hard, we can find some comfort in the little things in life. Not that I ever found it well written but some of it was charming, whimsical, ridiculously sentimental. The book alternates back and forth between the past and the present, and we slowly learn about the joys and sorrows in Violette's life. quando se vive o que estou prestes a viver que se sabe que está tudo bem, que nada é grave, que o ser humano tem uma capacidade inaudita de se reconstruir, de cauterizar, como se houvesse várias camadas de pele umas sobre as outras.

She forms friendships and relationships with the colorful and eccentric staff gravediggers, Elvis, Nono, Gaston, the undertakers, the Lucchini brothers, and the priest Cedric who become her family. Disappointing novels are worse than the stinkers because they break your heart for all the wrong reasons.

How about the time Nono warned Gaston that the soil was crumbly this season, but Gaston tumbled into a grave face down.

To słona woda na spierzchniętych ustach, to szelest papieru wyczekiwanej książki, to łyk porto w małym kryształowym kieliszku. Her earlier marriage to Philippe Touissant, a man she met when in her late teens, has left a permanent mark on her very soul.He had no idea his mother knew him at all, and Violette helps him with the rituals and process of his task. Valérie Perrin gives us something a little different here while exploring grief and loss by using a cemetery as the setting. Violette again does all the work while Philippe plays games, rides his bike, and philanders - but Violette is content with her home and vegetable garden. She goes beyond what a caretaker does as she cares for her garden of souls and makes the cemetery a place of life, hope, comfort, and memories. I hope to finish this today or tomorrow and focus only on this read" My heart is broken (truly) for all the wrong reasons.

Violette narrates the start of the story, informing the reader that “I savor life; I sip at it, like jasmine tea sweetened with honey.It is contemporary fiction, a murder mystery, a thriller, a tragedy, and a romance all rolled into one. Violette's routine is disrupted one day by the arrival of Julien Sole--local police chief--who has come to scatter the ashes of his recently deceased mother on the gravesite of a complete stranger. It soon becomes clear that Julien's inexplicable gesture is intertwined with Violette's own complicated past. It’s a long list, two pages, and even though it’s not Owen’s list, I couldn’t (can’t) stop crying as I read it, because it’s so true that part of what you are grieving is that future, the one you pour your hope, your effort, your time, your love, your heart into as a parent.
