I sought the one my heart loves

Dominique MARNY

Add to my list


Two childhood friends have gone their separate ways in life but will eventually meet again for a passionate love story.

France, 1940. Two friends are separated by the war. Alexis, ten years old, promises he will always watch over Anne, who is nine, and secretly in love with him. By chance, they will meet fifteen years later, in Brussels, and yet again, in both Paris and San Francisco. But they have built separate lives: a happy marriage, children, a fulfilling job, teaching and writing for him; art galleries and exhibitions for her.
Yet they can not resist their feelings: San Francisco will finally be the start of their love affair...
