Livres de Alexandra Hamer
This is one of the most extraordinary books I've read... It's harrowing in parts, it's glorious in it's descriptions and heart-warming with it's gentle romance and deep love. Took me on a journey that made me realise the importance of being who we are and recognising that acceptance, tolerance and understanding should be applied in every aspect of our lives.
