S. Corinna Bille arrives in a small town by Lake Geneva with the intention of staying there three weeks to write. She remembers her wonderful childhood with her five siblings, in the family household – a huge house affectionately called Le Paradou.
As a child, she loved nature and dolls, theatre and words, and she recalls the moment she decided to become a writer.
In this intimate and touching first-person narrative by Sylvie Neeman, the reader is welcomed into Corinna Bille’s innermost thoughts. Neeman beautifully captures Corinna’s independent spirit and the sense of childlike wonder that she carried with her throughout her life.
