You Me Everything

Author:

Catherine Isaac

Synopsis:

Jess and her ten-year-old son William set off to spend the summer at Chateau de Roussignol, deep in the rich, sunlit hills of the Dordogne. There, Jess's ex-boyfriend and William's father, Adam, runs a beautiful hotel in a restored castle. Jess is bowled over by what Adam has accomplished, but she's in France for a much more urgent reason: to make Adam connect with his own son. Jess can't allow Adam to let him down because she is tormented by a secret of her own, one that nobody - especially William - must discover yet. YOU ME EVERYTHING is a story about one woman's fierce determination to grab hold of the family she has and never let go, and a romance as heady as a crisp Sancerre on a summer's day.
