by Laura Madeleine

Thomas Dunne Books

Description:

It is 1919, and the end of the war has not brought peace for Emeline Vane. Lost in grief, she is entirely alone at the heart of a depleted family. She can no longer cope. And just as everything seems to be slipping beyond her control, in a moment of desperation, she boards a train and runs away.

Her journey leads her to a tiny seaside village in the South of France. Taken in by café owner Maman and her twenty-year-old son, Emeline discovers a world completely new to her: of oranges, olives and wild herbs, the raw, rich tastes of the land. But when a passionate love affair develops, secrets from home begin blowing in on the sea waves.

Fifty years later, a young solicitor on his first case finds Emeline’s diary, and begins to trace a story of betrayal, love, and bittersweet secrets that will send him on a journey to discover the truth.
