Upon agreeing to be the brand ambassador for a famous cognac celebrating their bicentennial, novelist Stéphane Belcourt returns to his hometown for the first time in many years. Memories come rushing back to him: irrepressible attraction and a passion that can never be revealed as he remembers Thomas, his first love. Fate intervenes when he meets his first love’s son, Lucas.
“Romantic, sexy and also provocative in the way it challenges us to meaningfully confront our own history.” Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall.
