Justine is 21 years old and has lived with her grandparents and cousin Jules since the death of her parents. She works as a carer at a retirement home and spends her days listening to her residents stories. After bonding with Hlne, an almost 100-year-old resident, the two women slowly reveal their stories to one another. Whilst Justine helps Hlne to relive her memories of love and war, Hlne encourages Justine to confront the secrets of her own past, and the loss she has buried deep within. One day, trouble arrives in the form of a mysterious phone call that shakes the retirement home to its core and uncovers a shocking revelation. At once humorous and melancholic, Valrie Perrins debut novel is a story of how the past can shape our present, and the scars of undeclared love.
