La ragazza delle ciliegie
How far must you run to leave the past behind in order to find love?
It is 1919, and the end of the war has not brought peace for Emeline Vance. Lost in grief, she is suddenly alone at the heart of a depleted family. She can no longer cope. And just as everything seems to be slipping beyond her control, in a moment of desperation, she boards a train and runs away.
Her journey leads her to a tiny seaside village in the South of France. Taken in by cafe owner Maman and her twenty-year-old son, Emeline discovers a world completely new to her: of oranges, olives and wild herbs, the raw, rich tastes of the land.
But when a love affair develops as passionate as the flavors of the village, secrets from home begin blowing in on the sea waves.
Fifty years later, a young solicitor on his first case finds Emeline's diary, and begins to trace a story of betrayal, love, and bittersweet secrets that will send him on a journey to discover the truth.
