Some secrets are too devastating to be told...When Natalie Moore is killed in a freak accident in France, her mother - the very poised and elegant Jessica - knows instinctively there is more to it. However, Natalie's father - the glamorous, high-flying Charlie - is so paralysed by the horror of losing his daughter that he refuses even to discuss his wife's suspicions. In the end, when their marriage is rocked by yet another terrible shock, Jessica decides to go back to France alone in search of some answers. When she gets to the idyllic vineyard in the heart of Burgundy, she soon finds a great deal more than she was expecting in a love that is totally forbidden and a truth that will almost certainly devastate her life. Set during one long hot summer in a sleepy world of wine, food and romance, A French Affair is a deeply sensual and passionate story of love, resistance, loyalty and betrayal.
