Inspired by her own life's tragedy, Julie has penned a story that she believes she owes all to her husband, Bruce.

Ellie is confident that the journey she embarks on to be rid of grief is her husband's final gift of love to her, so she will find happiness and know that her purpose in the next chapter of her life is to share the wisdom of her brave journey with others. Michael's unexpected parting gift takes Ellie to various places. She is called to Croatia's Jewel in the Crown, Dubrovnik, thousands of miles away from home. Alone there, she finds in the least likely people her greatest healing lessons. Ellie becomes fixated with solving the mystery in her husband's painting. Why is it so important for her to know if the birds in the painting are doves or seagulls? A voice in a dream encourages her to be in Paris for the New Year. She suspects she knows the voice, and so she goes to Paris. She discovers French lingerie and embraces the life of a Frenchwoman. The result being, that the handsome, Marcel Bellamy, will reignite the spirit of the woman she was always meant to find there.

She will have you questioning your own experiences and asking the question, What if?
