Quand j’ai acheté ce livre, je ne savais rien de Pierre Loti, mais désormais je le connais bien, surtout pour son écriture et sa vie. Pour commencer, j’aimerais vous conseiller ce livre, à lire absolument, d’une qualité exquise qui ne vous fera pas regretter votre lecture.

I think this is the same, the version I read was titled 'A Child's Romance' which I really like a lot more. This book is a true treasure, and I wish more had read it.
