Blossom and Blood

François VALLEJO

Our destinies have always already begun, continue elsewhere, start up again in another time, and never end.

Does François Vallejo believe in reincarnation ? The destinies of two medical doctors, one in the 17th century and the other in the present day, are interwoven in time.

Urbain Delatour, born under the reign of Louis XIV, follows his father’s teaching to become master surgeon-apothecary. He overcomes his fear of blood and, while assisting his father in treating the local sire, falls under the charm of the sire’s daughter, Isabelle de Montchevreüil : a disturbing horse woman who frightens the region’s countryfolk. She seems willing to do anything to prevent Delatour from getting near her father.

It is the 21st century, state of the art surgery has replaced naturopathy and Étienne Delatour has a brilliant future ahead of him. He excels at carrying out the most sophisticated operations. One day, he is offered the post of the chief of the cardiology department in a reputable Parisian hospital. It is said that Irene, the hospital director’s daughter, and one of his former conquests, has some involvement in this surprising appointment.

A secret sails through these two stories. It is in reading between the lines that the reader will discover it.
