Sylvie Germain

Tobie des marais

€9,80

Un petit enfant en ciré jaune roule sur son tricycle sous l'orage. On dirait un soleil miniature. On lui a crié : «Va au diable !», et il y file, chassé par le vent du malheur.

Ainsi commence ce roman de Sylvie Germain où l'on voit ensuite une cavalière décapitée revenir sans sa tête, sur sa jument. Et cette tête demeure introuvable, et donc sans sépulture comme l'ont été tous les morts de la famille de Tobie du côté de la branche paternelle. Déborah, l'arrière-grand-mère de l'enfant, a quitté autrefois son village de Pologne pour émigrer en Amérique, mais, refoulée à Ellis Island, elle a fini par s'installer, après bien des détours, au cœur du Marais poitevin. Elle a traversé l'Histoire du siècle en perdant la plupart des siens, et se tient auprès de Tobie en gardienne de la mémoire.

Devenu jeune homme, Tobie se lie d'amitié avec Raphaël et tous deux partent en voyage. Au cours de celui-ci, Tobie fait la connaissance d'un peintre et de sa fille Sarra, aussi belle que maudite...

Pour raconter cette histoire riche en merveilleux, en émotions, en amour, Sylvie Germain s'est librement inspirée du célèbre récit biblique, le Livre de Tobie.
