Colette

French writer Colette. A writer who captures precious, painful and uplifting moments. I have recently read her novella ‘Ripening Seed.’

To quote from the back page of the novella: Sharp and sad, haunted on every page by the sights, smells and sounds of the sea coast, this evocation of wounded, and wounding, innocence will be read with tears of sympathy and deep, lasting pleasure.

I loved this story.

1947

I am going to post images from the 1940’s. I have a novel in progress that is set in WW2 in England and France and I am researching this fascinating period.
