BLURB:  

 

When John Martin is forced to sell his tech company, he decides to take a six-month vacation to the south of France. 

 

When he meets Madame Garcin, her daughter Sophie, and her granddaughter Isabelle, his life is changed forever.   What began as a long vacation becomes a journey of self-discovery marked by love, loss, and tragedy. 

 

He is molded by this family of three generations of women, tempered by tragedy themselves, in ways that he could never have imagined.

 

 

EXCERPT:

 

On the weekends, John would visit surrounding towns to explore. He visited Avignon and Gordes, as well as other cities in Provence. He always liked market day, when the farmers came into town with their produce to sell in the town plaza. The market became a sea of color with the various fruit and vegetables stacked neatly in rows as people from town gathered to select their food for the week. It was not only the fruit and vegetables that attracted him, but also the stores filled with cheese, pastries, and meat. It seemed like there was a specialist for everything.

 

Unfortunately, the bucolic nature of his current life continued to be interrupted by his weekly updates from his lawyer regarding the SEC investigation. He wondered if it would ever go away. His lawyer continued to fend off the SEC, but eventually he would probably need to return to California for questioning. His lawyer kept telling him not to worry, but that was easier said than done. The whole ordeal continued to weigh on him. Since his arrival in Aix a month before, the calls about the investigation seemed like the only news he had heard from home. Mike was probably too busy getting ready for the arrival of his new baby, Michelle was probably not speaking to him, and his parents didn't call. He assumed his father was mad at him for selling the company.

  6. Isn't his family missing him, if he is away for such a long time? Or wasn't he married?

  7. He is a single guy. And now that he has 350 million dollars in his pocket after selling his company it is time to get away. He stays longer than he had planned, but you will need to read the book to find out why. He finds true love, but it far from easy for him.

Excerpt:

With the phone to his ear, Cayden turned and looked at me, his sapphire gaze roaming from the hair piled in a messy bun atop my head, to my bubble-gum-pink-painted toenails before he smiled. My heart thrummed. Reaching out, he pulled me onto his lap where I willingly went, and picked up a pen from beside my laptop. Then, he crooked his head, holding the handset to the cordless in place against his shoulder to free his other hand and took a hold of mine. Curious, I wondered what he was up to. Cayden turned my hand over, palm side up. Swiped his fingers softly over my palm once. Wrote, I Love U,boldly across it. And then he curled my fingers closed, securing the words tight within the palm of my hand before he moved his hands from mine and took hol…
