Recommended by

Christianne Beasley
J'ai tout de suite été attirée par les illustrations de cette bande dessinée historique qui raconte une histoire d'amour et de perte dans l’après-guerre. Le Mont-Blanc y joue un rôle important - l’éditeur nous dit : "Mais qu’importe, l’amour est plus fort que tout, dit-on. Et s’il est capable de déplacer des montagnes, il peut aussi aider à les gravir." Une histoire à découvrir sans hésitation !
