"Plan your trip to Provence now. In this meticulously researched novel, Juliet Blackwell deftly navigates three time periods, taking us from contemporary California to both The Belle Epoque and Nazi-occupied France as she spins a story as charming as an antique carousel."--Sally Koslow, author of Another Side of Paradise "An untrusting American orphan meets a dysfunctional French family--and each turns out to possess wisdom that helps the other to heal from old, old wounds. With crystalline imagery, vivid characters and lively prose, Juliet Blackwell redefines what family means, in a way that will touch readers long after they've read the last page.
