Love for war's victims keeps them apart. Will love for each other see them through? The slightest spark will ignite an explosion. And the tinderbox of broken political and racial relations in 1960s France and Algeria provides plenty of kindling. In the midst of the chaos, Gabriella Madison guards the orphans in her care while battling jealousy with Anne-Marie Duchemin, David's former flame who has recently arrived in Castelnau, France.
Faith and love could cost them everything. When Rislène Namani meets Eric Hoffmann in 1994 France, the spark between them ignites a firestorm of trouble. She fears the repercussions from her staunchly Muslim family for her attraction to a Christian. Yet Eric captures her heart. More than that, his faith captures her soul - a faith she comes to embrace. And it all stirs up a wasps' nest of danger, mystery, and love that could cost her everything, even her life. The risk is real, especially when Rislène's family discovers her secret.
