Madeleine Melquiond

16,00 €
Unloved by a mother whose only concern was social ascent, constantly criticized for her intellectual aspirations or her political battles, Madeleine Melquiond maintained a conflictual relationship with her mother, fueled by bitterness and dissatisfaction. Until the day when Alzheimer's disease invades their daily lives and forces the daughter to take care of her mother. But how to take care of those who have never been able to love us or recognize their wrongs? Madeleine Melquiond, in this bitter story, describes her own difficulty in ignoring her resentments, and the slow construction of a new and peaceful relationship.
