"When Marie Claire, a fifteen-year-old girl living a quiet and dutiful life in the French countryside, meets Andrew Martindale, she knows her life is about to change. Andrew, the second son of an earl, has been recently jilted by his fiancee and is vacationing to mend his broken heart. Mesmerized by the sight of Marie Claire standing on the edge of a field of sunflowers, he first paints, then pursues his "Sunflower Girl," and all through that long hot summer of 1894 they meet in secret." "Andrew then returns home to England without a glance back, not knowing or caring that Marie Claire's once-bright future has been shattered: She is carrying Andrew's child. The Sunflower Girl is certain he will soon come back for her, but when she is shunned by her family and hurt by spiteful gossip, hope is soon lost. Only determination remains - a determination to make a life for herself and her child, and a burning conviction that one day she will meet again the man who has ruined her life...."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
