Présentation de l'éditeur

From the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop, an extraordinary novel about self-discovery and new beginnings.

Marianne Messman longs to escape her loveless marriage to an uncaring husband - an artillery sergeant major named Lothar. On a day trip to Paris, Marianne decides to leap off the Pont Neuf into the Seine, but she is saved from drowning by a homeless man. While recovering in hospital, Marianne comes across a painting of the tiny port town of Kerdruc in Brittany and decides to try her luck on the coast.

In Kerdruc, Marianne meets a host of colourful characters who all gravitate around the restaurant of Ar Mor (The Sea). It is this cast of true Bretons who become Marianne's new family, and among whom she will find love once again. But with her husband looking to pull her back to her old life, Marianne is left with a choice: to step back into the known, or to take a huge jump into an exciting and unpredictable future.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A novel of taste and emotions! 5 mars 2017
Par The booktrail - Publié sur

What started as a very sad and quite depressing novel, after finishing it, I sat down and realised what I’d just read and the story I’d been on with her. It’s very very poignant and really makes you think about your own life and why Marianne did what she did and what brought her to that point. I can’t and don’t want to give anything away but it’s a journey of discovery in many ways and there are many delightful moments despite the sad cloud which hung over the start of the novel.

This was also a very gourmand tour of France – From Paris to Brittany this was a feast for the eyes and tastebuds as well as for the mind. Food becomes the symbol of hope and discovery, as Marianne literally tastes the landscape via all her senses and starts to appreciate the small things, the freedom from being away from her old life.

There were some very funny moments – those nuns! – and the scenes in the restaurant in Kerdruc were brilliant. The visit to Aven – ah this is just a wonderful journey and through the unique and emotions of the landscape – very French and very lyrically written.

There is a lovely mix of a message to look for the simple things in life, to love and appreciate the detail in the everyday and to use art and creativity to really open up your world. This book carries a strong message with an air of melancholy but the overall impression of it left me wondering about my own life and feeling glad I’d read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A brilliant magical story 2 mars 2017
Par Suze Lavender - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Marianne and Lothar are in Paris, but even in this vibrant city Lothar manages to kill Marianne's joy and after forty-one years of marriage she can't take it anymore. Lothar doesn't see her, he's unkind, he cheats and he doesn't want his wife to have anything. He has never given her the idea that he loves her. Marianne kept waiting for a gesture, a token of love, but she now knows Lothar will never give it to her. She sacrifices and suffers and there's only one person who can make it stop. That's why she and the Seine become one for a short time. While she thinks this will be the end of her life it's actually only the beginning.

After receiving a sign Marianne travels from Paris to Kerdruc in Bretagne. It's where she thinks she's supposed to be, at least for the time being, for the short existence she still has left. She finds a job in Ar Mor, a restaurant with friendly, but suffering people. Slowly Marianne uncovers a side of herself that went missing in her marriage with Lothar. The healing effects of Kerdruc turn her into a different woman. However, Lothar is still her husband and she isn't in Kerdruc to stay, or is she?

The Little Breton Bistro is a book to fall in love with. It's a story I could and will read over and over again. Marianne never learned to choose herself. She always did what Lothar expected of her and what's left is an empty shell. She has to go through something terrible to be able to hold on to life and maybe even dare living it. I loved her gentleness. She has such a big heart and she only gives and never takes. Her physical and spiritual journeys are both beautiful and it was amazing to see her grow, to become the most she could be. Marianne finds her brave side and discovers how gorgeous she can be, both on the outside and the inside. Age doesn't matter when it comes to finding love and happiness, as long as you're alive it's never too late, and that's an important lesson nobody should ever forget.

Marianne finds the most delightful friends in Kerdruc. The inhabitants of the small coastal village are spirited, generous and caring. They discover love in the most unexpected circumstances and just like Marianne they have to learn to be courageous and they have to open their eyes before they can actually see what's always been right in front of them. That is what I loved the most about The Little Breton Bistro. To truly notice and be noticed is the most scary thing there is, but it's also the most rewarding. I enjoyed reading about every single character and they've all got a special place in my heart.

Nina George has a stunning writing style. Her sentences always manage to enchant me from the very beginning of her stories. She perfectly captures the magic of France and describes Bretagne vividly and accurately. She makes it come to life the way it deserves and I could see the small village, taste the food and breathe in the air, which is something that can only be accomplished by a brilliant storyteller. I loved how Marianne doesn't only embrace her new surroundings, she also becomes part of them. I liked reading about the sea, the traditions and the wonderful celebrations. I had tears in my eyes and a smile on my face at the same time. Marianne struggles, but she perseveres and even though her path to become the woman she can be isn't smooth she always finds the right direction. Her life goes from bitter to sweet and back again several times. It's something I could easily feel and sympathize with. The ending of her story is romantic, spellbinding and terrific. It's a lovely surprising finale of a precious plot. I highly recommend The Little Breton Bistro, it's an absolute must-read.

Marianne has had enough of her dowdy, meaningless life. She has lived with her husband for forty years, who neither loves her, nor respects her.

On a trip to Paris with her husband, she quietly slips out of a dinner party and makes her way down to the river Seine. Carefully removing her few possessions, she jumps into the river hoping to end her life.

Unfortunately for her, she is pulled to the bank by a homeless man, and an ambulance is called, taking her to the local hospital. Once there, her husband turns up, though sorrow and pity are the last things on his mind. He is upset with her, telling her what she has attempted will look bad on him. He also decides that she needs to see a psychologist.

Marianne then comes across a tile with the beautiful port town of Kerdruc, Brittany on it. She decides there and then that she is going to find a way to get to this beautiful place, and leave her past behind her.

I was honoured to have read an advanced copy of Nina George’s last book, ‘The Little Paris Bookshop‘ in 2015, and loved every page of it. So when I became aware that Nina had written another book, I was eager to read this one too.

Nina writes with pure passion. She goes against the grain with her stories, and fills them with characters that don’t normally make the cut in novels, the older generation.

There is an air of sophistication about Nina’s work, you don’t just read her words, but you feel them too.

The Little Brenton Bistro, is a complex story, one told by a sixty-year-old woman who has had enough with this life. She wants some happiness, and if that means finding it in death, then so be it.

Being ground down by the man who is supposed to love her really has taken its toll on Marianne. She no longer cares what people say about her. She no longer cares what her husband thinks about her. Unfortunately, it feels like she no longer cares about herself as well. So when a spur of the moment idea seeps into her head, she has nothing to lose.

This book could be seen as a sad book, with a depressing undertone at times, but it is also uplifting. It is an inspiration to anyone that has ever felt lost in this world to discover, even if only in fiction, what life could be like. Don’t be fooled by the chick-lit-esq cover, as this is far from one.

Nina George will grab hold of your emotions and toss them around during ‘The Little Brenton Bistro'. The story is awe-inspiring, captivating and completely masterful from beginning to end, and is a must read for 2017. I can see this book winning some awards this year.

The beginning of this book was surprising, there was a sombre atmosphere that hit me unexpectedly. For some reason I was concerned about the outcome of the situation before I even had the chance to become familiar with the characters. Quite an achievement I think! Next came a feeling of desperation and sadness which made me want to reach into the book and give Marianne a hug, she was someone who really needed to be shown some love.

When Marianne took those first steps to finding out who she truly wanted to be I almost punched the air in victory, it was a fabulous moment.

As the storyline progressed I found myself giggling at the antics of the characters in front of me. I wasn't sure Marianne would fit in to begin with because the others seemed so vibrant and full of life, but then I figured they were just the kind of people she should be surrounding herself with! There were a few bumps in the road during the pages that followed but Marianne continued to transform into someone new and I felt honoured to be joining her on that journey.

This was a romantic and beautiful read that touched me in completely unexpected ways. It left me contemplating life and reminded me that you can achieve anything if you're determined enough.
