Once upon a time, there were stories of silences, of things left unsaid and other little details that populate the imagination of Amélie Dallaire. The author’s intuition guides her through trails of freedom where the everyday and the fantastical meet in a pleasant chaos. However, not everything is disorder here. The lines weaved by glances and hands between characters reveal a world whose uniqueness reflects their own, drawing our Cartesian minds towards more freedom. Under the trivial guise of an insignificant everyday life, the author’s search for meaning pushes her to dive into the void that so many of us try to ignore. Genuine and uncompromising, Amélie is a breath of fresh air, an invitation to believe in life’s greater (and minor) powers.
