The compelling story of two women, born centuries apart, and the ancestral legacy that binds them.
Ella Turner tries hard to fit in to the small, close-knit community of the French town that she has moved to. She even changes her name back to Tournier, and knocks the rust off her high-school French. Isolated and lonely, she is drawn to investigate her Tournier ancestry, with heart-wrenching results.
Isabelle du Moulin, known as La Rousse because of her fiery red hair, is tormented and shunned in her village – suspected of witchcraft and reveiled for her association with the Virgin Mary. When she becomes pregnant, she has no choice but to marry into the arrogant Tournier family. Tormentor becomes husband, and a shocking fate awaits her – as Ella Turner discovers four hundred years later.

When he looked up and saw me, he stood up, smiling nervously. He was wearing work clothes, a white button-down shirt, a navy cotton blazer and docksiders. He looked big and healthy and American in that dark cave of place. like a Cadillac crawling through a narrow street.
