Set in Normandy, France this is a love story, which was born in the tragedy of war. When Bella’s parents fell in love, it was against all the rules, however, rules, as they say, are there to be broken, and in the face of adversity, their love endured.
If you live, or have lived in a small rural community, you will know that although they are tight knit and very supportive, these communities forget nothing, events are retold through generations even after many years have past.
Bella’s story is one of tragedy, acceptance, love and longing, and of two very different men Jean-Louis, the charismatic Frenchman and Colin, a thoughtful English writer.
The author has written a wonderful story, which is beautifully descriptive and held my attention until the very end.
