This historical fiction, spanning decades and continents, gives graphic insights into the Antebellum South and weaves together many different family stories. Madam Sylvie Guilbert came to Louisiana as a young teen after being married hastily to escape the French Revolution. After 60 years as the mistress of her plantation, she wants her portrait done, and the process brings many secrets to light. The novel is very character driven and explores the interconnected lives of both the slaves and Guilbert family at Le Petit Cottage.
