Book 📖 blurb 🖼
A woman’s quest to save her family’s chateau in France brings danger, rivalry, and romance—and reveals a secret buried since World War II . . .
1931, Chateau de Chevalier: Ophélie, La Duchesse de Bombelle, receives a love letter from her admirer Picasso along with a gift: a priceless painting. Nine years later, the Nazis invade France and steal countless works of art, including Ophélie’s gift . . .
Present day: Ophélie’s grandson, Hugo, has run the family finances into the ground, and the Chateau is in danger of being sold. Fabienne, heiress to the estate, has hastily returned from London and is desperate to save her home.
Meanwhile, Mac, a British man who has spent every summer in France with his late grandparents, inherits their cottage—but his property is in danger of being lost as well. When Mac returns, memories of happy times with two people he adored come flooding back—along with guilt that he didn’t return in time to say goodbye to his beloved grandfather.
When Mac is reunited with Fabienne, their attempts to rescue their futures will plunge them into the darkness of the past—and the dangers of the present—in this powerful, suspenseful saga by the author of Resistance.
My ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review
A fantastic family saga that completely drew me in from the first pages.
I adore books that are historical and thrilling, and this book was the perfect mixture of both!
Gorgeous setting and an interesting back story made me completely enthralled with the happenings.
Some interesting twists, especially with the characters really kept me on my toes and I ended up reading this in a day, as I couldn’t put it down!
Emotional at times, I found myself desperate for a happy outcome, it gripped my heart so much! Amazing story and a pleasure to read.
