His mother calls him a worthless halfwit while his fellow drunks at the local bar ensure he's the butt of all their jokes. He spends his days whittling wood, counting pigeons and adding his own name to the list on the town war memorial. So how could Germain possibly anticipate what a casual encounter on a park bench with eighty-five-year old Margueritte might mean?

In this touchingly comic tale of an unusual friendship, that first conversation opens a door into a world Germain has never imagined--the world of books and ideas--and gives both him and Margueritte the chance of a happiness they thought had passed them by.

A heartwarming tale of two unlikely friends. This book will make you think about the labels we attach to people and will also give you hope in humanity.

What a delightful, fun read of two unlikely companions. Highly recommend if you're looking for something a little different or if you're looking for someone to believe in you and give you that boost of encouragement.
