            Changing the Course of a River

            Release date : 03/01/2019
            A young, uneducated waitress becomes the “personal chauffeur” of a misanthropic judge. Is it a recipe for disaster or an act of Providence?
            Marie lives on a meager waitress’s salary. From an underprivileged background, she didn’t have the chance to study, unlike Alexandre, a brilliant, smooth-talking young man with whom she is quite taken. Despite their mutual attraction, a cultural gap becomes apparent from their first night together. After awkwardly humiliating Marie, Alexandre... Marie lives on a meager waitress’s salary. From an underprivileged background, she didn’t have the chance to study, unlike Alexandre, a brilliant, smooth-talking young man with whom she is quite taken. Despite their mutual attraction, a cultural gap becomes apparent from their first night together. After awkwardly humiliating Marie, Alexandre stops giving her signs of life. Hurt by his behavior, Marie finds him and, in a fit of anger, insults him, pushes him, and causes him to violently fall. She is taken to immediate trial and finds herself ordered to pay damages and compensation and is formally prohibited from approaching him. The judge, who happens to be a regular at the bar where Marie works, offers her a job: work as his chauffeur for a few months to make enough money to pay the debt. During these trips, which are silent at first, a friendship slowly develops between the taciturn judge and the girl for whom life hasn’t been easy. Changing a River’s Direction brings two completely separate worlds head to head. By breaking down social barriers, this urban fable traces the magic of intellectual awakening and the blossoming of a bond between two prickly people who only owe their conversations to their unlikely meeting. Murielle Magellan tugs the reader’s innermost heartstrings with this sensitive coming-of-age novel.
