This is a really unusual and haunting "little" book with lots of photos. At base, true story/photographic essay of child of WWII who grew up, married, and found happiness and simple beauty with his family in a country French home, then lost his wife and four children in a tragic fire, then a bit of what happened later. The heart of the book are the photos of and simple text about the young family before the fire. I found this more affecting and worthwhile than the whole of many longer, more finely written books.
