Despite her mother's neglect into a clear eyed observer of the life around her The Wine of Solitude is a powerful tale telling less of the end of innocence than of disillusionment; the story of an upbringing that produces a young woman as hard as a diamond prepared to wreak a shattering revenge on her moth. Yet again I ve picked up another N mirovsky book that I could not put down I was immediately pulled into this story about a young girl named H l ne who spends her loveless childhood watching her neglectful parents fall to their own vices and how she tries to forge her own path in life H l ne s greatest struggle throughout it all is to find a way to forgive and forget There are echoes of Anna Karenina throughout the text with allusions to its opening lines of vengeance is mine I will repay and all happy families are alike each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way What is highly interesting about The Wine of Solitude is the fact that it s the most autobiographical of N mirovsky s works Though the subject matter is uite heavy and sad I couldn t stop turning the pages because of the way that N mirovsky turns pain and suffering into such beautiful writing H l ne experiences much sorrow anger and hurt but she also finds happiness in les petits bonheurs de la vie such as reading swimming in the sea and being in nature These little moments throughout the book make it shine But she loved studying and books the way other people love wine for its power to make you forget What else did she haveThe night was crystal clear now a transparent blue She sat down by the window humming softly Never had her heart felt so light a kind of joyous passion flowed through her bloodShe lay down in the water looked at the sky above and laughed thinking with gratitude It s impossible to be unhappy when you have all this the smell of the sea sand running through your fingers the air the breeze I m not afraid of life she thought The past has given me my first experiences of the world They have been exceptionally difficult but they have forged my courage and my pride And that immutable treasure is mine belongs to me I may be alone but my solitude is powerful and intoxicating
