Stella is pretty relaxed about her gift of second sight. Her happy-go-lucky attitude to her gift screeches to a halt when Siri, her twelve-year-old daughter, is savagely murdered and Stella can find her daughter nowhere, in this world or the next. Then, in the old French town of Agde, she meets Louis, a clever mysterious man, and a young boy who is always near him. These two lead her to a place and a time where her search for Siri takes on a new meaning.

So, here I sit, in this café at the end of and ancient quayside - in use since this town was a Phoenician trader's port in 600BC. Like the 17th century Maison D'Estella where we stay the quayside plays in a recent novel :
... Now we're on the quayside and I stumble on the uneven lava blocks that pave it and - quite naturally - he takes my arm. I can hear the jingling of boat tackle and the shout of seamen's voices but these there are no boats drawn up on the quay just waiters and waitresses setting out cutlery and napkins in the smart pontoon cafés huddling here in the place where ships once docked, drawn up side by side, ready to unload. Madame Patrice said that, didn't she?
'You know Madame Patrice? You said you knew her,' I say.
'I think I probably do. I knew her husband Ettiene from another time. He was a great scholar. And I am acquainted with Madame Patrice. But I've not been here so long, this time...' From my novel An Englishwoman in France.
