Lost and Found
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Lost and Found
Julia and her sisters are shocked when they inherit their father’s impulse-buy – a château in a small village in France.
She is sent over from England to sell the house as quickly as possible.
But when she gets there something about the place enchants Julia.
For although La Mulatière is decrepit, enormous and unmanageable, it is a house with a hundred stories, and all of them are begging Julia to uncover them.
Her father’s legacy turns out to be a blessing in disguise. Julia finds herself falling in love with the house, the villagers – and perhaps even her brooding, surly neighbour, Jacques.
Even as she is drawn to Jacques she is warned away from him by those who think they know him better.
And unresolved issues with her ex, Oliver, might wreak havoc on her idyllic hideaway…
La Mulatière begins to yield its secrets one by one, and Julia pieces together the past even as she tries to fathom her own future.
Tales of the house in the Revolution, of its aristocracy flung from riches to abject poverty, and of a mysterious and scandalous noblewoman, all come to light.
But the echoes from the past will not be silent in the present, and Julia slowly begins to realise that her prying might have serious consequences for her own future…
Is La Mulatière the cure for Julia’s heartbreak…or will the past ruin what might be her last chance of happiness?
‘Lost and Found’ is a beautiful, evocative romance rich with the history of France.
