Anne and Alexis are separated by war as children and reunited later by destiny. A powerful and dramatic love story that spans decades in spite of its seeming impossibility.
Anne, 9, and Alexis, 11, grow up together in the Montmartre area of Paris. While she has a major crush on him, he merely sees her as his friend’s little sister. After WWII begins, the two are separated as their families flee Paris to avoid the German occupation. When they say goodbye, Alexis promises to always protect Anne.
Anne holds on to this promise for years as she constantly thinks of Alexis, wondering where he may be. Anne grows up, finds works in an art gallery, and marries a kind, devoted man with whom she has two children. But her heart still belongs to Alexis and she never stops looking for him. Their paths cross fatefully one day in Brussels many years after they were separated.
Alexis, living in Canada and soon to be moving to San Francisco, has a family of his own; a wife in constant depression and a son. Despite their responsibilities to family and the geographical distance that keeps them apart, Anne and Alexis find a way to love one another, secretly yet passionately.
But after all this time, will they ever manage to be truly together, completely?  [provided by the publisher]

My Review
This book reminded me that true love is worth waiting for and that your true love will always come back to you. Even when you least expect it. I liked that the setting was Paris to Canada to California. It was interesting to read about Paris and how its citizens were affected by German Occupation. It was a view of WWII that I have not read about before. The ending sealed up the plot very nicely, and I would love to me a fly on the wall at the Cafe! I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
