In an abandoned garden, wanly lit by a crescent moon, a crumbling vase holds a long-forgotten secret. A tale of adventure, of daring, of courage… and the key to happiness?
In this companion volume to Love, Triumphant, the curious ancien régime love triangle of Pauline, her headstrong pug Pompon and her lover Jean-Pierre opens a new chapter, told in five watercolor vignettes: Bereft, Adventure!, The Search, Determiniation, and The Bounty.
En promenade one day in the garden, Pauline’s beloved mops Pompon bolts off for adventures unknown, leaving his mistress bereft. The couple search in vain while Pompon, in an abandoned corner of the estate, digs feverishly to unearth a long-forgotten secret, finally completing his quest under the feeble light of a crescent moon. He returns that night with his trophy, triumphantly offering Pauline and Jean-Pierre a key that could reveal a great bounty–or is it the veritable key to happiness?
