Après les Ardennes et la Provence, Françoise Bourdon explore la côte atlantique et le bassin d'Arcachon. Elle en décrit l'histoire, et l'atmosphère si particulière, à travers le destin de cinq héroïnes. 1849. Léonie, fille de modestes résiniers, grandit blessée par le désamour de sa mère, qui, un jour, lui assène : " Tu n'es pas faite pour le bonheur, tout comme ta dernière fille. ". Elle deviendra ramasseuse de sangsues. Sa benjamine, Margot, refuse cette existence de labeur et de honte : à elle la Ville d'Hiver, à elle le choix d'une autre vie. Par amour, un homme bâtira pour elle la Maison du Cap... Se poursuit au fil des décennies et des tumultes de l'histoire une grande saga d'héroïnes : Charlotte la photographe, Dorothée l'aviatrice, Violette la résistante. De génération en génération, elles perpétuent une lignée de femmes fortes et ardentes. La Maison du Cap demeurera un refuge pour Margot et ses héritières, et le bonheur, une quête ardue, dans une société toujours corsetée. Françoise Bourdon peint un tableau captivant du bassin d'Arcachon de 1849 à 1947 en évoquant traditions et histoire d'un lieu fascinant, terre élective d'artistes et station balnéaire en vogue.

« Le Cap était habité, il y a environ cinquante ans, par un charpentier appelé Mazé-Kervella. Sa femme, après la perte d’un fils premier-né, essayait de tromper sa douleur par les soins qu’elle donnait à un nourrisson dont la naissance avait coûté la vie à sa mère. Le père de cet enfant travaillait au port de Brest, et ne venait à Plougastel que pour y partager sa journée du dimanche entre son cher André (c’était le nom de l’enfant) et les offices de la paroisse. Fruit d’une sélection réalisée au sein des fonds de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, Collection XIX a pour ambition de faire découvrir des textes classiques et moins classiques dans les meilleures éditions du XIXe siècle.

Shortly after Albert Cohen left France for London to escape the Nazis, he received news of his mother’s death in Marseille. Unable to mourn her, he expressed his grief in a series of moving pieces for La France libre, which later grew into Book of My Mother. Achingly honest, intimate, and moving, this love song is a tribute to all mothers. Cohen himself expressed, "I shall not have written in vain if one of you, after reading my hymn of death, is one evening gentler with his mother because of me and my mother." From the Trade Paperback edition.

Spanning from the West African coast to the Canadian prairies and south to Louisiana, the Caribbean, and Guiana, France’s Atlantic empire was one of the largest political entities in the Western Hemisphere. Yet despite France's status as a nation at the forefront of architecture and the structures and designs from this period that still remain, its colonial building program has never been considered on a hemispheric scale. Drawing from hundreds of plans, drawings, photographic field surveys, and extensive archival sources, Architecture and Urbanism in the French Atlantic Empire focuses on the French state’s and the Catholic Church’s ideals and motivations for their urban and architectural projects in the Americas. In vibrant detail, Gauvin Alexander Bailey recreates a world that has been largely destroyed by wars, natural disasters, and fires – from Cap-François (now Cap-Haïtien), which once boasted palaces in the styles of Louis XV and formal gardens patterned after Versailles, to failed utopian cities like Kourou in Guiana. Vividly illustrated with examples of grand buildings, churches, and gardens, as well as simple houses and cottages, this volume also brings to life the architects who built these structures, not only French military engineers and white civilian builders, but also the free people of colour and slaves who contributed so much to the tropical colonies. Taking readers on a historical tour through the striking landmarks of the French colonial landscape, Architecture and Urbanism in the French Atlantic Empire presents a sweeping panorama of an entire hemisphere of architecture and its legacy.
