Kimberly Rochester has led a life filled with adventure, romance, and heartbreak. A woman of exceptional spirit and courage, she suddenly finds herself alone and in despair on a beach near her manor house in Brittany.
Crushed by a series of devastating losses, she is on the brink of relinquishing everything… until her teenaged grandchildren arrive just in time, bringing her to safety and begging her to tell them her life story. Their only request? She must leave nothing out.
Kim’s story begins with an elite London upbringing, which has done nothing to temper the hardships of her childhood: her mother’s relentless emotional cruelty, her years spent in a dreary and harsh Belgian convent school, and later, a series of shattering tragedies. But Kim has always been an optimistic and imaginative woman, and has always had Uncle Oliver, her dashing and loving godfather, to be her bright and shining guiding light.
As she recounts her young adulthood in Paris, her journey to China during the Cultural Revolution, her dangerous love affair, motherhood, and the secrets and lies she uncovers along the way, we learn how resilience, hope and family can sustain a person through the greatest hardships.
