Brigitte Nicholson is locked in a dulling mid-life limbo, but she still has the boyfriend and job that she's always wanted. Within two terrible days, that all changes. Searching for stability or at least distraction, she travels to the Salt Lake City Family History Center for some quieting genealogical research. What begins with mundane microfilm searches soon becomes a quest to understand one of her ancestors, a mysterious woman named Wichiwi. Curiosity piqued, she tracks this Dakota Sioux back to her birthplace and then, incredibly, into the French court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Danielle Steel's double-laced novel shows anew that sometimes when we probe deeply into the past, we resolve personal issues that have been festering for years.
