Sebastian Lavalle is just fifteen when he leaves home in 1934 to join the navy. Seven years later, Sebastian unfortunately knows all too well about the horrors of World War Ii and what it is like to fear the unknown. When repairs force his ship to the rugged shore of Newcastle, the young French naval officer is invited to a tea dance to celebrate Bastille Day. He seizes the opportunity, hoping to find comfort and a small taste of the home he misses so much.

. Amelia Sullivan, the daughter of Irish immigrant parents is thrilled to be attending the tea dance. When Sebastian's eyes find her in the crowd, he drinks in her exotic beauty. Moments later as he draws her into his arms for a dance, there is no doubt in his mind that he has just met the woman of his dreams. Days later, Sebastian professes his love and marries her, sending them both on an unforgettable journey through betrayal, survival and forgiveness. The saga takes the reader from England's coast, to the French Riviera and also to America. Their soul searching journey explores the many facets and depths of love leading to the realization of what true happiness means.

. Amelia's Prayer is a tender and moving saga spanning forty years after two young souls are flung together during World War Ii.

About the Author:

Christiane Banks lives in Ontario, Canada, with her husband. Amelia's Prayer, which took six years to write, is her debut novel.

Review:

This elegantly written historical romance details changing times with subtlety and care... . Elegantly written, Amelia's Prayer is a brave, engaging story of romance and disappointment. Christiane Banks's confident style and complex characters make this debut novel a must-read for fans of historical drama, realistic romance, and fiction, one that begs to be enjoyed again and again. --Clarian

A sweeping family saga, Christiane Banks' Amelia's Prayer is an engrossing and emotional story that spans decades and generations... . The author manages the tale's pacing perfectly; she covers several decades without the story ever feeling rushed or belabored. In addition, the settings are beautifully described and realized, never overshadowing the plot or characters. Overall, this is a well-written exploration of love, relationships, heartbreak, tragedy, happiness, death, and hope; an honest and thoughtful portrait of what it's like to be a family. --Blue INK

The book adroitly plots out a whole family history, carefully connecting the dots over successive generations. The prose is often elegant: \"she had never seen such a magnificent tree in her whole life. It looked like a weeping willow dressed for a ball.\"... the quality of the writing and the sweetness of the story will carry romantically inclined readers along to the poignant conclusion. --Kirkus Review
