Three Seasons of Thunderstorms

Cécile COULON

A powerful family saga, written by one of France’s rising literary voices.

At the foot of the million-year-old cliffs nests a remote village, made up of farmers and workers making a living from quarrying stone.

It is here that after World War II, Andre, a doctor, visits once a week to treat the workers and their families. He slowly learns to love this desolate place and becomes attached to the inhabitants, until one day he settles here to continue his work. He buys a superb property on the outskirts of the village, where he had been called to years before to try to save a newborn, without success.

Andre belatedly learns about the existence of his son Benedict who he decides to take under his wing. Once he completes his studies, Benedict marries Agnes, a sublime creature from the city. He takes on the work at the doctor’s surgery and has his own family. The arrival of their first daughter, Bérengère, and her first love, seems to challenge the fragile harmony that had been created.

Will the million-year-old cliffs, and their wild sovereignty, reclaim their rights?
