In an idyllic setting of countryside and woods, Colette spent her childhood surrounded by a warm and loving family. Years later, her memories and experiences inspired her to create a series of snapshots of the innocence of provincial life. At once poignant and vividly alive, her recollections portray a magical world, filled with the beauty and the warmth of human relationships--"and, above all, the lasting impressions made by her wonderful mother. French novelist Colette (1873-"1954) is most famous for her portraits of childhood in the.

I‘m done with the Fall part of the #Booked19 reading challenge and my favorite is the book in the tag. Plotless and slow story about growing, but rich in setting and prose.

Nostalgic, tender and almost idyllic reminiscence on the childhood, heavily autobiographical and presented in short chapters - vignettes about nature, mother, father, old house ... Recommended, if you are craving for simple, but beautiful, heartwarming prose and story.

Memories of Colette's youth in a house with a garden, filled with life and animals and her mother Sido. I liked the mother a lot. Therefore maybe, it's not so strange I felt the story collapsing after Sido dies. The beautiful sentences and Sharp observations remain, however. #1001books
