Among sun-kissed fields of lavender in the French countryside…

And spending another summer in upstate New York, along familiar roads that lead to surprises…

In both summers, she will fall in love and discover new sides of herself. She is both living amid secrets and kept from them. But what matters more – the choices she makes or the experiences that shape her?
