Why this book?

  • Because you will meet an exceptional father and daughter.

    When Juliane realizes that her father, Jean, seems to "derail" at times, she decides to take matters into her own hands.

    She welcomes him to her home, to the delight of Charlie, her son, who finds a sacred playmate. Juliane then has plenty of time to observe Jean, to remember happy moments, but above all to create them. again.

  • Because everything seems to fall apart for Juliane when she suspects

    that for Jean, it is not just a question of forgetfulness or awkwardness, but of something more serious.

    She will accompany him to the doctors, to update what she fears so much.

  • Because we find all the benevolence and humanity specific
