Summary (From the publisher):

In this enchanting novel, Anne Hébert creates a shimmering fable that captivates and dazzles with its simple beauty.

While growing up, Clara is surrounded by her father Aurélien's unrelenting silence and the sounds of the lonely countryside. The Mademoiselle, the village teacher, arrives to take her to school and the world seems to open up before her eyes -- only to close in again later.

When Clara is fifteen an English lieutenant suddenly appears, having "escaped" the hell of the London blitz, and Clara's peaceful countryside is never the same.

The power of silence and generosity pervade this gentle story, along with the beauty of the earth in harmony with humanity.
