Sachant que l'on retorouve des personnage d'un autre roman de M. Higgins Clark, il aurait été préférable que je lise "Ne pleure pas ma belle" au préalable !

This was the first book that ever gave me the idea that I too could write a book. I read where Mary Higgins Clark soon became a single mom and started writing to support her family. I would love to do the same.

Un conjunto de breves relatos. Historias que se resuelven en diez páginas. Algo ligero y rápido para el verano.
