Jessica is a victim of a mass shooting in Paris, France and when she regains consciousness is confused and disoriented. Her friend Patrick seems to continue to be the rock he has always been for her..but is he? Staying at a rural French B&B, her new friends help her regain some semblance of normalcy as well as assisting in her research to translate some very old documents she finds in a beautiful antique sewing box. Could these stories of Huguenot Protestants and their persecution help her to understand her own search for trust in a loving God?

The Huguenot accounts are inspiring and bring about a spiritual change in Jessica who is questioning why God would allow these types of massacres to happen.
