The gripping new novel from the world's favourite author.
A tale of love, courage and family, interweaving the lives of two extraordinary women – a writer working in the heart of modern academia, and a daring young Sioux on an unforgettable journey in the eighteenth century.
Someday is Brigitte Nicholson’s watchword. Someday she and the man she loves, Ted, will clarify their relationship. Someday she’ll have children. Someday she’ll finish writing her book. Someday she’ll stop playing it so safe... Then something happens that changes Brigitte’s life completely.
Struggling to plot a new course, Brigitte agrees to help her mother on a genealogy project – and makes a discovery that reaches back to the French aristocracy. How did Brigitte’s ancestor, Wachiwi, a Dakota Sioux, travel from the Great Plains to the French court of Marie Antoinette? How did she come to marry into Brigitte’s family? Brigitte decides to travel to South Dakota and Paris to follow the path of this exceptional young woman who lived so long ago. And as she begins to solve the puzzle of Wachiwi’s journey, her quiet life becomes an adventure of its own.
A chance meeting and a new opportunity put Brigitte back at the heart of her own story. And with family legacy coming to life around her, someday is no longer in the future. Instead, someday is now.
