The year is 1923 and the world continues its recovery from the ravages of World War I. In this second historical novel in the Meuse Trilogy, MARIE DURANT CHAGALL, now 27 years old, continues her own journey towards recovery, planning a return to nursing with a grand scheme of opening a rural health clinic, La Clinique Meuse.

Her experiences aboard ship, in America and in Paris at La Hospital Pitie-Salpetriere before returning home again to Meuse, propel her forward towards her destiny in ways she could not have imagined.
People from diverse and intriguing backgrounds and familiar characters from book one, The Lavender House in Meuse, journey alongside Marie, their own search for new beginnings often intersecting her own.
