Fatou Diome

Celles qui attendent

€20,00

Arame et Bougna, mères, respectivement, de Lamine et Issa, deux émigrés clandestins. Elles ne comptaient plus leurs printemps, mais chacune était la sentinelle vouée et dévouée à la sauvegarde des siens, le pilier qui devait tenir la demeure sur les galeries creusées par l'absence. Mais comment

dépeindre la peine d'une mère qui attend son enfant, sans jamais être certaine de le revoir ? Coumba et Daba, quant à elles, humaient leurs premières roses : jeunes, belles, elles rêvaient d'un destin autre que celui de leurs aînées du village. Assoiffées d'amour, d'avenir et de modernité, elles

s'étaient lancées, sans réserve, sur une piste du bonheur devenue peu à peu leur chemin de croix.

Mariées, respectivement à Issa et Lamine, l'Europe est leur plus grande rivale. Esseulées, elles peuvent rester fidèles à leur chambre vide ou succomber à la tentation. Mais la vie n'attend pas les absents, derrière les émigrés, les amours varient, les secrets de famille affleurent ; les petites et grandes trahisons vont alimenter la chronique sociale du village et déterminer la nature des retrouvailles. Le visage qu'on retrouve n'est pas forcément celui qu'on attendait.
