Sweet and simple, verging on simplistic at many points, but the overall arc of an elderly lady on a quest to find her brother and discover herself at a late but not too late point in her life is beautiful. If you read this more as a fable or prose poem, it makes more sense and you expect less depth and finesse of character and plot. Just discovered this important Quebecois writer and will explore her other work.

J'ai été déçue, je voulais lire ce livre depuis si longtemps! Depuis que j'avais lu un extrait en secondaire 5 je voulais lire l'histoire complète pour savoir le reste du voyage d'Éveline. Je crois que je m'attendais à plus, j'ai bien aimé les moments où elle décrivait les paysages dans l'autobus mais honnêtement le reste me semblait un peu insipide. Je ne pense pas relire de Gabrielle Roy...
