The Confidant

by Helene Gremillon

This captivating thriller weaves intricately around the lives of Annie, Madame M., Lois and Camille. Set in the past as well as in present-day France, I was moved by the powerful depiction of a mother’s love for her child and the extreme lengths she will go to in order to protect that bond.


I felt a sort of rush. Everything had to stop. Now. Our strange companionship could not last much longer. Camille was a month old. She still went from one pair of arms to another without minding, but soon she would begin to smile for one of us in particular.
