She can’t face her past. He can’t fulfil his father’s last wish. Can they find love despite thousands of miles between them?
France, 1986. When Isabeau Martin inherits her childhood home, she’s anxious about returning to the place of her life’s greatest disappointment. Hoping to track down the father who abandoned her at age nine, she takes up the position of deputy postmaster of the seaside town of Carnac. As she builds a new life for herself, Isabeau wonders if discovering her father will take more courage than she can bear.
Joseph Turner swore an oath to his father: scatter his ashes at the standing stones of Carnac. Just before he plans to leave New Zealand for France, a devastating tragedy leaves him a broken man who’s unable to perform the sacred duty. Determined to lay his father to rest, Joseph reaches out to the Carnac postmaster in the hopes of finding some way to fulfil his father’s final wish.
Through a series of letters, Isabeau and Joseph develop an unlikely friendship, opening their hearts to each other even as secrets burden them both. When they finally meet in Carnac, each day together strengthens their bond. But when Joseph discovers Isabeau’s dark secret, he’s not sure he can ever forgive her. Can they forget the scars of the past to create a beautiful new future?
