When Lucien first returns to the fold to attend a wedding after Elena’s efforts, his family almost overwhelms him with their fierce love but some anger as well. The rowdy, boisterous cousins Lucien grew up with hug and punch their lost “brother” in turns. Their hearts too have been wounded by his loss and absence from their lives. Elena has always been the little girl standing outside looking in at the loving and loyal Rosier family while wishing to be a part of such a group who loves fiercely and would give everything to protect each another. Elena’s work with Tante Collette tracking down the various members of extended family lost though time and circumstance gives her a glimpse of what it must feel like to be unconditionally loved which is something she has never known.
Elena and Lucien’s relationship faces several challenges including their wounded souls and his career with the Legion. Lucien realizes he can find home again not only as a physical place but an emotional one with Elena. She is quite the hard sell never really believing that she is worthy to be loved, or that she can trust anyone with something as fragile and injured as her heart.
Their story reminds me that while blood ties are important, families are made of people who care for each other with a deep abiding love. People are truly blessed when they form relationships outside of the familial ones becoming brothers, sisters, or children of the heart. Their bonds are just as deep and strong as those whom they are related to and, in some cases, more so.
Laura Florand’s writing always brings me such joy. Her stories are more than romances; they are beautifully rendered portraits of places such as Provence where the pace of life has varied little over the centuries imbued with scents of wonderfully fragrant flowers and inscribed in the feel and atmosphere of old stone walls and cobbled streets. These defining elements add much depth and dimension to this tale of loss, love, and two people finding a place to call home in each other despite or because of what life has thrown at them.
If you're looking for a quick easy love story, this is not it. But it's so worth it by the time you get the end.
