Publisher's Summary

À Little Tall, un meurtre reste inexpliqué depuis trente ans. Joe, le mari de Dolores a disparu le jour de l'éclipse solaire, en 1963.
Aujourd'hui, une seconde mort rappelle la première, celle de Vera Donovan, une femme cruelle qui employait Dolores Claiborne comme dame de compagnie. La culpabilité de Dolores semble ne faire aucun doute, pourtant l'horreur n'est pas simplement dans le geste criminel mais plutôt dans tout ce qui, années après années, a pu porter une telle noirceur dans l'existence de ces femmes.

The youthful sounding Élodie

I only mention the youthfulness of the narrator's voice because I am still learning French. So having the voice of a 63 year old character in the book read by someone as youthful sounding as is Élodie's, it took some getting used to. In comparison, I was simultaneously using an English version of the book, also available on audible.com for the translation. The English version's reader was deftly able to reproduce the exact sounding fit for the Dolores Claiborne character.
