The Mysterious Bookshop

Garnier, Pascal, Too Close to the Edge

Recently widowed grandmother Éliette is returning to her house in the mountains when her car breaks down. A stranger offers help and Éliette gives him a lift, glad of the company and interruption to her routine.

A tale of retirement, calm domesticity, with a hint of menace about to explode.
