Sweet Lili, she was a loving child. She had heart where other less courageous people would falter. Lili I think was born with courage because her mother Emilie had passed away not long after giving birth to Lili. Lili was a fortunate girl in the fact that even with her mother gone she would be truly loved by her mother’s best friend Julie de Bercy. Julie begged to take Lili in as her ward even though she was expecting a child herself any day. Julie would not back down and eventually would have her way. The three women would form a type of merry trio. The ladies were all educated, had social skills, and my favorite aspect of the trio was that Julie had made sure she instilled in the girls when they were young that they were free thinkers. She taught them to question what said reason is with class befitting a lady of their ranks.
Lili and Delphine were the type of girls that struggled with society circles and the rules of engagements as far as the court politics were concerned. On the cusp of The French Revolution Lili struggles with what is to be expected of a typical young woman and as she grows into womanhood she begins her search to find out who her mother Emilie really was. But more importantly who was Lili and where was her place in this world going to be?
