Abstract:

"In this novel, a young nurse forms an unlikely connection with the elderly man she cares for, and finds herself confronting the guilt she carries from her past"--

Marguerite Demers leaves Paris for the sleepy southern village of Saint Sulpice to take up a job as a live-in nurse. Her charge is Jerome Lanvier. Once one of the most powerful men in the village, he now dying alone in his secluded house surrounded by neglected gardens. Brigitte Brochon, pillar of the community and local busybody, finds Marguerite arrogant and is desperate to find a reason to have her fired. Outsider Suki Lacourse sees Marguerite as an ally in a sea of small-minded provincialism. Brigitte's husband Henri, a farmer, wants to protect her from the villagers' intrusive gossip and speculation. The arrival of Jerome's three sons will upend the rhythm of their days, changing their lives forever. -- adapted from jacket
