From the author of My Husband’s Sweethearts and The Pretend Wife comes a moving novel about love and hope in the face of loss, in which a small house in the French countryside may be responsible for mending hearts since World War II.
Broken hearted and still mourning the loss of her husband, Heidi travels with Abbott, her obsessive-compulsive eight-year-old son, and Charlotte, her intolerably jaded sixteen-year-old niece, to spend the summer repairing their family home in a small village in the south of France. There, thousands of miles from home, Charlotte makes a shocking confession, and Heidi learns the truth about her mother’s “lost summer” when she was a child. As three generations collide with each other, the neighbour next door—who seems to know all their family secrets—and an enigmatic Frenchman, they’ll journey through love, loss, and healing amid the lavender fields, warm winds, and pistou soup of Provence.
Bridget Asher is the author of My Husband’s Sweethearts and The Pretend Wife. She lives on the Florida panhandle with her husband.
