American photographer Cady Drake shoots local merry-go-rounds, a hobby inspired by a carved wooden rabbit gifted to her following her troubled years in foster care. Now at a crisis point in her life, Cady can’t refuse a freelance assignment that will send her to Paris to document its antique carousels. While there, she hopes to track down the true origins of her rabbit, which she always believed to be carved by French carousel maker Gustave Bayol.

Cady’s research leads her to Provence, where she discovers a dilapidated carousel carved by Bayol for the grand Château Clement in the early 1900s. After commissioning the carousel, the Clement family struggled to maintain their ancestral home through the two World Wars, buffeted by jealousies passed down through the generations.

Despite the carousel’s derelict state, Cady longs to restore it—if she can secure the permission of the run-down château’s gruff, elderly owner, a man with secrets of his own. As Cady digs deeper into the past, unearthing century-old photographs of the Clement carousel and its creators, she might be the one person who can bring the past to light and reunite a family torn apart.

Juliet Blackwell tells the story of Cady, present time, and the 1900’s in France using a dual timeline format. While it can sometimes get confusing which time you are reading, Juliet does an amazing job keeping the two storylines separate while weaving them together a little bit at a time. I l...
