What core values would you want to pass on to your child if you knew you would soon be gone?
Daisy, an actress at the height of her fame, leaves Paris to star in a series that will be filmed in the south of France. She moves to Montpellier with her whole clan: Joseph, her ten-year-old son, Raphaël, her husband, Filipia, their nanny, without forgetting Hubert, their blind dog. Daisy... Daisy, an actress at the height of her fame, leaves Paris to star in a series that will be filmed in the south of France. She moves to Montpellier with her whole clan: Joseph, her ten-year-old son, Raphaël, her husband, Filipia, their nanny, without forgetting Hubert, their blind dog. Daisy and her family can finally have a calmer life, far away from the ups and downs of show business. It means time to have fun on the beach and enjoy sweet evenings overlooking the water, all while watching her son—whom she cherishes more than anything in the world—grow up. She hopes to make up for lost time after being stuck on film sets for so long. But she didn’t account for a twist of fate changing everything. Suddenly, Daisy becomes ill. She won’t be able to see her son grow up. She won’t see him go through the emotional teenage years, or pass his final exams, or get married, or become a father. Her inability to teach him what’s most important eats away at her more than the cancer. But then she finds an ingenious way to stay in touch with him after she’s gone: she will write five letters that he will receive on his birthday at important points in his life. Each of these letters will contain a mission that Joseph must accomplish in order to understand one of life’s essential values.

This novel with a dynamic female voice touches on the astounding power of resilience, the importance of the transmission of family values and the parent-child bond, but also the suffocating effect this connection can sometimes have.
