Heidi is still mourning the loss of her husband Henry; he died in a traffic accident. She is now a single woman raising a young son on her own. A series of events leads her to travel to France with her eight-year-old son, Abbot and her sixteen-year-old niece.
What she is expecting is unclear. Her mother has told her to listen to the house. The house she has always been told stories about, the house she visited as a child. But she is just not sure that a house can help her raise a son alone, or even get over the broken heart she has from losing her husband.
Yet what she finds is much more than she can put into words, memories from the past; confessions from her niece; neighbors who know secrets. Many other factors play into this trip including a handsome Frenchman that becomes important to many decisions. Heidi must take all this and work her way through a path in life that will shape her future.
Bridget Archer has done it again. She has written a book that makes you look at your own life while immersing yourself in her character’s lives. The lure of two cultures connecting, of love and heartache becoming one, of healing and of joy is what The Provence Cure For the Brokenhearted is all about and more. A book worth sharing with friends.
