With love at stake, can she leave her past behind?
The end of the Great War has left Emeline Vance lost in grief, suddenly alone at the heart of a depleted family. Just as everything seems to be slipping beyond her control, in a moment of desperation, she boards a train and runs away.
In a tiny seaside village in the South of France, Emeline is taken in by cafe owner Maman and her 20-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 blow in on the sea waves.
Fifty years later, a young solicitor on his first case finds Emeline’s diary, sending him on a journey to trace her story of betrayal, love, and bittersweet secrets.
"Delightful, delicious and so typically French sweet and salty…a must-read for every reading gourmet.”—Nina George, author of The Little Paris Bookshop
