Une irrésistible envie de fleurir

Christine Michaud

Pour certains, 45 ans, c'est la moitié d'une vie, mais c'est plutôt court si l'on se fie au principe de la floraison humaine. À l'instar des plantes, certains humains prennent plus de temps que d'autres à faire leurs racines. C'est le cas de Juliette. Elle se croyait au sommet de sa carrière d'animatrice télé, dans une vie amoureuse bien rangée. Mais en l'espace de quelques jours, elle perd son travail, son petit ami, tout comme la confiance qu'elle avait en elle et en l'espoir de jours meilleurs. Lors d'un voyage qui la conduira dans la forêt de Brocéliandre, elle comprendra que pour améliorer sa vie, l'humain a besoin de retrouver sa vraie nature. Pour y parvenir, elle s'intéressera à la psychologie, à la philosophie, aux arts et à la spiritualité. Sa quête la mènera sur l'île d'Orléans où, avec l'aide d'une petite fille de sept ans et la vieille dame qui en prend soin, Juliette apprendra à fleurir de nouveau.

Becoming

Michelle Obama

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States

In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African-American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.
