Every good love story has another love hiding within it.
Brokenhearted, still mourning the loss of her husband, Heidi travels with Abbott, her troubled eight-year-old son, and Charlotte, her intolerably jaded sixteen-year-old niece, to spend the summer repairing their family home in a small village in the south of France.
The rundown stone house in Provence has been in the family for generations and is the center of a lovely myth. The family tells and retells stories of the magical properties entwined around the old stones – in many different ways, this house has healed broken hearts and made miracles happen.
There, thousands of miles from home, Charlotte makes a shocking confession, and Heidi learns the truth about her mother’s ‘lost summer’ — a time Heidi and her sister had learned not to ask about many years ago.
As three generations collide with one another, with the neighbor next door, who seems to know all their family secrets, and with an enigmatic Frenchman, they’ll journey through love, loss, and healing amid the lavender fields, warm winds, and the delicious pistou soup of Provence.
This is one of those lucky shots that came about from shooting a blood red poppy field. Its just the horizon, with the foregrounds over-bright poppy field removed. That cloud is as it was, where it was, and I just left it hanging pensively in the corner!
