It was grey day when we visited the cathedral town of Amiens. Low energy, grey skies, but we did manage to get to the cathedral.
And there I was surprised to discover a labyrinth inlaid on its marble floor. Enchanted, I relaxed and felt better.
Amiens had seen action during World War I and there were moving tributes throughout the cathedral.
This northern town 75 miles north of Paris gave us respite and a window into another time.
And was the inspiration for the fourth book in my Touchstone series, Labyrinth of Love and Roses…

A Labyrinth of Love and Roses
What if what you wanted got in the way of your destiny?
French MBA grad Lili Grenault needs to succeed at her last pitch meeting to fund her international green tech business. But her grandmother tells her to drop everything, find her one true love, and embrace her magical legacy by Beltane, in one week, or chaos and failure in her life will ensue.
San Francisco investor Brett Barnaby wants to find his great-grandfather’s gravesite in Amiens, France, one of the primary battle sites of World War I. Family legend says that purpose, greater mission, and perhaps even untold riches, will be unlocked when he finds that grave. But his search in Amiens brings up fear, anger, and dire warnings about some wild Green Man. He turns to local Lily Grenault for help.
Can these two independent freethinkers work together to prevent chaos from triumphing and find love in time in the labyrinth of roses?
