After the loss of illusions, is it still possible to be open to love? While on holiday with her lover, Sarah, a publicist in her early thirties, is dumbfounded when he announces without any warning that he's leaving her. The young woman suddenly realizes the scale of the illusions she has harboured with regard to their relationship. Feeling hurt, she decides to put love behind her and throw herself into her work. Seven years later, still single, Sarah continues to choose professional success over the possibility of romantic failure. But... Does love really have just one face? Can you really lock up your heart and throw away the key for a lifetime? Can reality sometimes be more beautiful than illusion?

India Desjardins

India Desjardins loves chocolate, doesn't like having to move to
a new home, has invented lots of reasons not to go camping,
makes at least three mistakes a day and has a completely uncontrollable
brain. Here, the comparison ends with Aurélie Laflamme.
Following a ten-year career in journalism, the author
began doing what she most likes to do: writing fiction. Le journal
d'Aurélie Laflamme is written for teenagers, an audience that
she particularly likes. Her book Le Noël de Marguerite (illustrations
by Pascal Blanchet) won the prestigious 2014 Ragazzi
award for fiction at the Bologna Children's Book Fair. See full author information (French)
