Captain Jean Bouclaire is a smuggler, making his living from contraband. It's a dangerous life, and he believes Gabrielle deserves better. The only female he's ever loved as much as Gabrielle is his thirteen-year-old daughter Delphine. His daughter's mother refused to marry him all those years ago because he had no social standing and no wealth. Now Delphine's mother would rather spend the child support money on frippery than on food. Soon Jean must learn that both the love of his wife and his daughter must not be sacrificed because of his ideals about what they deserve.
Gabrielle's family waits impatiently for the return of her father and the reuniting of the family after thirteen years. Deftly weaving the loose threads to a conclusion while creating a buoyant, joyful romance, GABRIELLE spans time and distance to prove love does conquer all. I do hope that Claire intends to write an entire novel around the charming and spunky daughter Delphine. Indeed, Claire's remarkable Arcadian trilogy culminates a outstanding body of work, and establishing her remarkable story telling abilities. Highly recommended.
