From a vineyard in the south of France to the sophisticated city of Paris, Ella Moreau searches for the hope and love she lost as a young girl when her mother abandoned the family. Through a series of secret paintings, her art becomes the substitute for lost love—the metaphor of her life. But when her paintings are discovered, the intentions of those she loves are revealed.
“This story is about the life of a child transported to France to live at her father’s winery. This is pre WWII. Then Ella is abandoned by her mother. We follow her thru the growing up years as she blames herself for her mother leaving, for the death of her brother, and any thing else where someone leaves. War comes and eventually she moves to Paris to work on her painting career. Give this book a read. You’ll be glad you did.” ~ Amazon review.
