Julia  Holbe - Our Happy Days


Four girlfriends and an unforgettable summer that changed everything

Lenica, Marie, Fanny and Elsa – four friends spending a never-ending summer on the Atlantic coast in France. The future lies ahead of them like a promise; they are so carefree and full of the joys of their very existence that they don't notice life laying down its path forward.

When they meet again many years later they realise that their dreams and longings still join them together like some invisible power – in spite of everything that has happened since that evening when Lenica brought Sean along.

Julia Holbe's narrative is breathtakingly emotional – the tale of the really important things in life: love and friendship, coincidence and fate, guilt and betrayal – and that we only remember the past as we want it to be.

»Julia Holbe has written an aesthetic, light and yet powerfully evocative book about a happiness in the past.«

DER SPIEGEL, Volker Weidermann
