Apostolska, Aline, 1961-. Un été d'amour et de cendres : roman. Montréal : Leméac, 2012.
Emma a dix-huit ans. Près de trois ans se sont écoulés depuis cet évènement inoubliable survenu en Inde trois ans auparavant. Elle explique pourquoi elle veut maintenant raconter son histoire, et toute la douleur qu'elle ressent encore. D'abord, il faut mentionner que les parents d'Emma sont de grands voyageurs et qu'ils travaillent dans l'aide humanitaire. C'est dire qu'Emma est habitué à voyager dans des contrées lointaines depuis son plus jeune âge. Lorsque ses parents lui annoncent qu'ils
vont séjourner dans une petite communauté tibétaine exilée au nord de l'Inde, Emma est aussi contente qu'excitée. Arrivée en Inde, la jeune Québécoise est déboussolée par le climat de violence diffuse de ce pays, régie par les lois rigides des religions qui cohabitent et auxquelles tous se soumettent. À
Dharamsala, elle habite dans la section des orphelins. À travers son amitié avec Helle, une adolescente scandinave qui a aussi suivi ses parents en Inde, et les moments volés qu'elle partage avec Tenzin, son petit ami, Emma prend conscience du cul-de-sac qui attend les jeunes Tibétains, ces derniers ne pouvant pas s'intégrer à la société indienne très xénophobe. Ce qui pousse d'ailleurs Tenzin à commettre un geste désespéré. [SDM]. Basé sur des faits réels (l'auteure a vécu dans la communauté de Dharamsala en 1997), ce roman dense lève un voile sur la dure réalité des Tibétains exilés. Emma est déconcertée de voir les jeunes Tibétains en butte à l'hostilité bien réelle des Indiens. Incapables de s'intégrer dans la société indienne, impossible de retourner au Tibet, ils n'ont aucun avenir, à moins de s'exiler de nouveau dans un pays plus accueillant. Le lecteur est happé par les descriptions très visuelles de cette magnifique enclave, située au pied de l'Himalaya et par les émotions ressenties par cette jeune fille de quinze ans qui vit son premier amour. Pour lecteurs avancés.
