La petite fille qui aimait trop les allumettes

fiction | french

La petite fille qui aimait trop les allumettes (The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches) is the stunning tale of two siblings growing up isolated from the outside world with their authoritarian father on an immense estate surrounded by a forest. The pair speak a language and inhabit a universe of their own making. When their father commits suicide, they are forced into contact with the villagers beyond the enclosure and their cloak of romance and superstition quickly falls away to reveal not only the startling truth about themselves to the world but the startling truth about the world to themselves.
