When Lou meets Philippe, the wealthy heir of an aristocrat, he immediately sets his sights on her, and his powerful family is there to ensure that he gets what he wants. Soon Lou is caught up in a whirlwind arranged marriage, despite her feelings for Vincent, her first love. The story carries on through the difficulties of marrying a controlling man, and a seemingly unhealthy marriage, however the ending will completely surprise you.
This book was amazing from the get go, and the author uses no filler at all. I'll admit I'm used to skimming books, catching the gist and moving on, but that is utterly impossible with this book. This is the kind of read that pulls for all of your attention, and if you miss even a single sentence you will be lost for the rest of the story. The descriptive writing style is incredible, as is the take away message, but you should read it for yourself because I feel I could not do it justice in a review.
This is a truly a love story, in the most reverent sense. Not a tale of passion and lust like romance novels, but deep love and acceptance. You will be better for having read it.
