A castle. A brooch. Three women.
Bridging past to present- the French Revolution, World War Two, and present day- we read a remarkable story of love and loss, of battles fought and won, and others fought and lost. Of Ellie, who travels from North America to France’s Loire Valley to find answers to her grandmother’s life, secrets her grandmother has tucked into her Alzheimer’s-ridden mind. Secrets Ellie needs answers to so she can understand herself.
No matter how much I try to speak about this story, no matter the words I try to use, I could never fully give it the justice, nor the commendation Kristy Cambron deserves for writing such a beautiful story. It swept me away with each woman’s story, never once did I get confused on the timeline or whose story I was following. I was impressed with each woman’s determination and their fierce love for others. This one definitely made my top favorites list of the year!
