After a long travel delay, Claire returns to Champagne for the annual Celebration - it's her first time back to the village as a 'working woman' in the wine business. It's also an intense rush of emotion and memory when Claire is put on the spot to speak to the gathered celebrants.
There's important history from the postmistress and Legion of Honor recipient - Madame A Huron, who finally reveals her mysterious first name to Claire - and why it has been a secret all this time.
While not a part of the Love War Champagne diary from World War II, Claire shares a few details she learned about some of the villagers who survived the war in the cave - and their participation in the Resistance. She's also begun to put together some missing details from that diary.
