My Mothers House and Sido by Colette Sidonie-Gabrielle

Book Description

In "My Mother's House" and "Sido," Colette plays fictional variations on the themes of childhood, family, and, above all, her mother. Vividly alive, fond of cities, music, theater, and books, Sido devoted herself to her village, Saint-Saveur; to her garden, with its inhabitants and its animals; and, especially, to her children, particularly her youngest, whom she called Minet-Cheri. Unlike "Gigi" and "Cheri," which focus largely on sexual love and its repercussions, "My Mother's House" and "Sido "center on the compelling figure of a powerful, nurturing woman in late-nineteenth-century rural France, conveying the impact she had on her community and on her daughter -- who grew up to be a great writer."
