Helene and Annette are now eighteen and strive to put the horrors of their past behind them... But can they? 1877, St Etienne: Since the siege of the Communards in Par...is six years earlier, Helene is back in the safety of the family home. She watches as her eldest sister, Clarice, is set to marry the handsome young Lucas Barrineau, son of a wealthy, landowning family. Helene is now eighteen and a future as a wife and mother beckons. But can she overcome the abuse she suffered at the hands of unscrupulous men and finally put her painful past behind her?
