Gabriel goes to war on a suicide mission. Instead of being killed, he rises through the ranks and finds himself back in Paris with various medals of honour. The memories of that fateful night which changed his life come flooding back. He feels guilty for what he lost that night and is unable to forget or forgive himself. He is still traumatised and his only solution to stop his own pain and sufferings is to end his own life.
Ariah is an orphan. She has been through some tough times and worse of all she is betrayed and violated by someone she trusts and considers to be her protector. This leaves her in a terrible dilemma. She has a half sister, Miriam who herself is going through some harsh treatment. Ariah sets off to free her from her present situation. Luckily, she meets Jacques, a childhood friend who is prepared to make sacrifices to help her. When Jacques goes to war, she is left with her daughter Emmaline and Miriam while waiting for his return.
Since that terrible betrayal, Ariah has learnt to trust no one and how to defend herself. She goes for a walk on a bleak and cold night when she notices a body floating on the river Seine. Being a kind and compassionate person, she sets aside her fear and apprehension to help him. It's Gabriel with intensive injuries and barely alive. She manages to drag him to her home and tend to his injuries with Miriam's help until the doctor who looks after Emmeline who herself has whooping pays her a visit.
When Gabriel regains consciousness, he finds that he is not only emotionally scarred but faced with prominent physically scars.Read more ›
Ariah Larochelle is a survivor. Orphaned as a child and victim to a devastating crime she trusts no one. But when she finds a seriously injured soldier in the waters of the Seine she has no hesitation in rescuing him and taking him home.
This was a totally absorbing story. Ariah is a tough and strong-willed character, one who always tries to find good out of a bad situation. She is determined Gabriel will live, despite the horrific injuries to his face. When he regains consciousness, even with the help of medication, he is in a great deal of pain. Now he not only has to deal with his inner agony, but the physical results of his attempted suicide. Ariah nurses him back to health and welcomes him into her small family, who live in a poor part of Paris. Her six year old daughter Emmaline, Oliver the adopted stray dog and Ariah’s step-sister Miriam all play their part in turning Gabriel’s life around.
Ariah and Gabriel’s characters are beautifully and sympathetically written. There is an initial battle of wills, but gradually Gabriel comes to realise through the love and support of this little family he can escape the ghosts of his past. The story at first centres around Ariah and Gabriel, switching between past and present, enabling us to see how they have both become the damaged souls they are today. They fall passionately in love and just as you are thinking ‘happy ever after’, the unthinkable happens! A wonderful story – I didn’t want it to end!
Col. Gabriel de Laurent is haunted by ghosts of his past. He thought that joining the military and throwing himself into the heat of the battlefield would end his miserable existence but with the defeat of Napolian those hopes were lost. Retuning to Paris he decides to take fate into his own hands and end his life on the banks of the river Seine.
With demons from her past and worries for her sick daughter and missing husband plauging her mind, Ariah Larochelle leaves the warmth of her home and walks the Paris streets to clear her head. When she reaches the shore of the Seine she sees the form of a man, soaked to the bone and not moving. When she draws near to him she finds he is gravely injured, bleeding and still alive, but just barely. With the help of her sister she drags him back to their home in the hopes of saving his life. Can she save this handsome wounded soldier, or will all her efforts be for naught?
