    A book that will stay with me for a long time The themes motherhood, love, betrayal, desperation, etc touched upon in the book were very thought provoking Gr millon did a wonderful job of leading me to despise Madame M in the first portion of the book Annie s portion and then within the first few pages of Madame M s portion, I found myself not only sympathizing with her, but understanding her.One thing I think Gr millon did especially well was to make me think on that saying from childhood There [...]

    Find this and other reviews at flashlightcommentary.Ugh I had such high hopes for Helene Gr millon s The Confidant, but this book didn t work for me at all From the first pages I struggled with this one, pushing myself to finish it for the sole purpose of being able to say it didn t kick my ass.To be fair part the problem has to do with my reasons for picking up the book in the first place I routinely browse the New Release shelves at my local library and got really excited when I discovered wha [...]

    I wasn t at all sure about The Confidant when I first picked it up I was happy with the prospect of a story set in wartime France, but I was a little worried that the story was told through a series of anonymous letters in the 1970s Wasn t that just a little bit contrived Maybe, but the opening won me over.I got a letter one day, a long letter that wasn t signed This was quite an event because I ve never received much mail in my life My letter box had never done than inform me that the sea was [...]

    After the death of her mother, Camille Werner is going through the condolence letters when she comes across a letter that is rather strange First of all, it s not addressed to her the envelope is, but the contents aren t There s no return address And it doesn t read like a letter, but embarks on a story The writer, Louis, tells of meeting and befriending Annie as a child in the village of N in 1933 He was twelve, Annie was ten, and the world was changing.Camille thinks at first that the letters [...]

    The plot of this book seemed quite interesting at first, but I just could not bring myself to like this book.Yes, the way the author had handled the different points of view were interesting.Yes, the historical events were quite accurate, and interestingYes, the plot seemed interesting.Here is where it all fell apart The language was messy, and whenever there was a change of POV it was often unclear to me which of the characters were actually narrating It might be that the translated Norwegian v [...]

    I really liked this book and I was feeling as if it would be a solid four star novel, and then wow The very last paragraph came along and it earned that last star for an awesome conclusion I was thinking that it was going to finish in the conventionally predictable manner but I was so wrong I actually didn t see that coming Sure, elements of the conclusion were not completely unexpected, but the very end was just brilliant I really liked the change in perspective among the characters They were a [...]

    I finished this one last night and I can t stop thinking about it The story and the characters are still haunting me even though I closed the book I think this is one of my new favorites.

    What will an hopelessly deranged and infertile Frenchwoman do to have her own child Everything.I received my ARC of The Confidant from First Reads What initially piqued my interest was how reviewers compared the novel to Sarah s Key and having read and enjoyed that novel, I hoped to catch myself reading about drama and mystery set against the backdrop of WWII in France The Confidant is similar to Sarah s Key in the way that they are both set on the same stage, and both writers organized their st [...]

    H l ne Gr millon signe un premier roman admirablement ma tris Elle y aborde de mani re touchante et audacieuse le th me difficile de la maternit et des femmes en mal d enfant Le Confident est un drame psychologique m ticuleusement construit, sur fond de seconde guerre mondiale C est un roman tiroirs, qui se lit comme une intrigue polici re et va de r v lation en r v lation Jouant la carte du myst re avec talent, l auteure exploite brillamment le contexte historique et jongle avec le style pistol [...]

    First Sentence I got a letter one day, a long letter that wasn t signed.Camille Warner is in publishing, pregnant, abandoned by her lover, and sorting through condolences from her mother s death One letter, much thicker than the rest, stands out not only for its size, but its lack of either salutation or signature and seems to be part of a story As segments arrive, Camille is curious, thinking perhaps it s an author looking to be published, then intrigued as the characters begin to be identifie [...]

    This is a dual timeline novel, that alternates between 1975 and the years before during after WWII.In 1975, in Paris, Camille has just lost her mother when she receives a long, unsigned letter She tries to find the anonymous sender to no avail, and she keeps getting letters about a woman named Annie and a man called Louis, describing their lives during the Second WW Somehow, she feels this must be related to her, but doesn t understand why or how.I thought I d had my share of WWII books, but thi [...]

    3.5 sterren, apart boek maar voor mij was het niet altijd direct duidelijk welk karakter het woord nam, waardoor het wat slordig overkwam.

    I don t really know how to rate this book I must have liked it if I read it in 2 days but it was so disturbing I found it hard to like any of the characters and I found the background of WWII to be trivialized which bothered me It was hard to follow at times between the different narrators and time periods The ending was confusing and I found myself looking back in the pages for the clues I missed Perhaps the book flowed better in French.

    I found this story to be raw and eloquently powerful It is written in the form of letters being sent to our main character, Camille But after finishing the story, I am not so confident who the main character really is in this book Whose story was this I am feeling so many things and really am holding back tears and ten other emotions at the same time I became so wrapped up in this story and was literally on the edge of my seat, waiting to find out if my speculations from the beginning were corre [...]

    This is a sol 3.5 almost 4 star read.My second H l ne Gr millon novel and I can definitely see a pattern to her storytelling.This is the story of Camille, who s mother has just died and in the stack of condolence cards she receives a rather strange letter unsigned although the envelope does have a name on it, Louis and very confusing It s about a girl named Annie and her relationship with a wealthy woman Elisabeth who is unable to get pregnant Annie offers to get pregnant so that Elisabeth will [...]

    It is hard for me to rate this book with only two stars.This book got me interested because the main story is set in Paris, and during WWII, which I find the most interesting era because there is always something new to find out or to be appalled at So, I can almost say that I hated the first part of the book Writing was awful All the sentences sounded the same, they were so monotonous, without any indication of feelings I hated the characters Annie was immature girl And then there was annoying, [...]

    This little book intrigued me and kept me riveted from start to finish It s actually kind of haunting me, as several days have gone by since I finished and I keep finding myself wondering, did I really understand that book And the ending One of those WOAH moments I thought for sure I could see where it was going and then BAM Love those This is one of those books that jumps back and forth between time periods, but I found the device quite appropriate The story is basically about a woman in the 19 [...]

    Un livre tr s bien construit J ai aim l approche de l auteur, qui pour faire clater la v rit , nous fera intervenir 3 protagonistes Celle de Louis, d Annie et d Elisabeth la femme, l amant et le jeune homme amoureux conduit A tel point que nous passons d un personnage que l on va ex crer un autre.La dualit de ces deux femmes pour l amour d un homme et surtout d un enfant est tr s belle et horrible en m me temps Mais pour moi une question reste en suspensLouis tait il un pion aupr s d Annie ou av [...]

    One of the most challenging ethical dilemmas I ve ever come across is two parents battling over custody of a child when both have near equal claims Like The Light Between Oceans, The Confidant by H l ne Gr millon is the judgment of Solomon all over again On the one hand, I think the person who gave birth to the child barring abuse has a right to parent that child On the other hand, once the child has bonded with another person, is is right and fair to take the child away and give them to a stran [...]
