Visiting Paris to find out more about her great-grandmother's World-War-I-era pen pal Cécile, a forlorn Maggie, reeling from discovering her husband's infidelity, learns of devastating one-hundred-year-old secrets involving loss and forgiveness. Revelations about her family's past challenge Maggie's decision to face her future alone.


Maggie Ruth Mitchell's failed reconciliation with her unfaithful husband leaves her heartbroken--and pregnant. She accepts her family's invitation to Paris to pay homage to Cécile, whose World War I era pen pal letters to Maggie's great-grandmother Ruth are cherished family mementoes. Through reading Cécile's letters and learning about Ruth's tragic past, will Maggie find the strength to forgive and love again?


In the year 1919 following World War I, Ruth and Cécile begin corresponding through an American-French pen pal program. Cécile is fighting against consumption, a life-threatening illness.
