But when he disappears for several days, and returns with tales of a strange party at a mysterious house and a beautiful girl hidden within it, Meaulnes has been changed forever. In his restless search for his Lost Estate and the happiness he found there, Meaulnes, observed by his loyal friend Francois, may risk losing everything he ever had. Posed between youthful admiration and adult resignation, Alain-Fourneir's compelling narrator carries the reader through this evocative and often unbearably moving portrayal of desperate friendship and vanished adolescence."--P.
