Confessions d'une fille sans coeur by Martha Brooks( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Par un soir d'orage, une jeune fille à l'air paumé, Noreen, débarque dans une petite ville du Manitoba. Elle a dix-sept ans, elle vient de quitter son amoureux Wesley en lui volant son camion et son argent, et elle est enceinte. Elle se voit offrir un abri par Lynda, la propriétaire du petit café où elle est entrée. Son arrivée vient ébranler la vie terne mais paisible de quelques résidants de la communauté: Lynda et son fils Seth, âgé de cinq ans, Dolorès la sexagénaire dont la fille est morte l'été précédent, et Delbert, dont la vie a basculé à cause de la mort de son frère. Ces gens ordinaires tentent d'aider la jeune Noreen, malgré leurs blessures et leurs difficultés personnelles. -- Un beau récit réaliste tout en nuances, dans lequel on voit se tisser, entre des personnages d'une grande profondeur, des liens particuliers et fragiles. Chacun fait face à ses propres peurs et échecs mais est aussi capable de poser des gestes positifs pour affronter l'avenir. Le cadre social dans lequel est situé l'action est par ailleurs fort bien évoqué. [SDM]
