L'histoire :

Following a personal ordeal, Zack, a young general practitioner, embarks on a year of travels. Hired as a doctor on the islands of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, he discovers isolation, cold, and the challenges of island life; a journey that will change his life.


"The author delivers a profound novel, a dive into the heart of an island and its inhabitants." (Le Point)

"Jonathan Hammel, now an angiologist, had drawn from his experience as a general medicine resident to write the Hippocrates Prize-winning 'Stethos & Co'. His new work packs a punch..." (Le Quotidien du Médecin)

"From a temporary doctor's stay in Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, small French islands off the coast of Canada, Jonathan Hammel has written these chronicles of cold, isolation, and unforgettable encounters." (RadioTélévisionSuisse)

Clearly charmed by the archipelago, here is what he says about it at the end of his novel: "A generous nature, a friendly population, very welcoming in some aspects, sometimes a little suspicious of visiting mainlanders. A huge heart in too short a vessel. Mood swings, a sensitive soul, they want to be understood, admired, integrated into France while remaining proud of their difference." (FranceTV 1ᴱᴿᴱ)
