La liste de mes envies
The amazing destiny of a humble sewing shop owner of Arras whose life was transformed by chance.
Jocelyne, nicknamed Jo, works in a sewing shop in the small town of Arras but dreams of being a fashion designer in Paris. She admires women with sleek figures but does not quite have a model’s figure herself. She enjoys reading and has a blog on lace making. She misses her dead mother and her father who suffers from Alzheimer’s and has to be reminded every six minutes who he is.
“Prince charming” arrives in the form of Jocelyn whose nickname is also Jo. Together they have two children and lose another baby at birth. This tragedy shakes the foundations of their marriage. Mr. Jo becomes cruel and Mrs. Jo submits to his abuse in silence, telling herself her life is beautiful in spite of all. But her love and patience soon get the better of her husband’s lack of attention.
Until one day, thanks to the pretty twins who work at the hairdresser’s next door, she wins 18,547 301 euros at the lottery. That day, she wins big. Or does she?
