As soon as I started this book I couldn't put it down. It is a very individual and clever style of book - one which I would recommend to all. I found the book to be very thought provoking - as I read it, I felt as if I was in Jocelyne's mind, reading her thoughts and going through the emotions along with her.
The main storyline is how a women's life could potentially change following a win on the Euromillions lottery of over 18 million Euros. Jocelyne appears to have a satisfactory life, owning the haberdashery, living with her husband, who has overcome alcoholism but this has had a real effect on their life, and has two grown up children, although she also had a third baby who was still born, another element which has never been resolved.
From the outside, it looks like Jocelyne has a good life, however this is obviously not the case and this book is about her trying to decide whether this lottery win will make her life better.
She keeps the cheque folded up inside a shoe in her wardrobe, but will she decide to bank the cheque or will the cheque be found by someone else - her children and her husband all are capable of devious behaviour? The following story is well written and as I have previously mentioned, it felt to me that I was reading Jocelyne's thoughts and that I, as the reader, was watching her make the decisions and live her life with her.
I found the story to be heart-warming and true to life.
The List of My Desires (La liste de mes envies)
It is a story of love, but also of a regretted life story - I think Jocelyne would of made different choices along the way if she was to live her life again and she often thinks, what if??? Unless you previously knew, a reader would not guess it was a translated tale that they were reading. A cleverly written story, which I would recommend to someone who wanted a quick read, or who wanted a story about real life, with real life choices needing choices to be made.

As she thinks about how her life will be different, she decides not to tell anyone and hide the check. But one day, Jocelyne realizes the check has disappeared. Her husband, supposedly in Switzerland for a training program, does not return.

Her life destroyed, she still continues to see her hospital-ridden father who, due to Alzheimer's, forgets everything every six minutes. As for Jocelyn, he lives lavishly but not happily. He knows a wretched loneliness in his too-big house.
