Girl from the Chartreuse by Pierre Peju

Book Description

One wet afternoon, Etienne Vollard, driving a vanload of books to his shop, knocks down a little girl, Eva. Haunted by guilt, Vollard visits Eva in hospital and reads stories to her while she lies in a coma. He also meets Eva's mother, Therese, a struggling single parent whose dream is to be faraway, alone. When Eva awakes, the three of them are immediately aware that their lives are forever altered. Pierre Peju's profound and moving novel is about life, childhood, loneliness and learning to accept and understand our differences.
