Tender is the Light



A woman from Montreal at a crossroads in her life travels to Sweden to attend a prestigious conference in linguistics.  Divorced and her children having grown up, she secretly hopes for more than mere professional development.  Having experienced personel and  spiritual development, she longs to meet "the right man" and start a new chapter.

Here on the other side of the Atlantic she will soon find more than what she hoped for: a handsome, accomplished stranger, a relationship of tenderness and pinnacles of sexual and emotional fulfillment.

But as the affair unfolds, seemingly insurmountable problems present themselves.


Mature love

The book shows how love unites two people in spite of their differences and the obstacles they are confronted to that appear insurmountable.


It is about passion and devotion and life lessons inspired by turning inward and finding greater serenity.


How they passionately unite, almost symbiotically, and then find their autonomy and balance without loosing their deep devotion to each other. The secret for her lies in turning inside, in meditating, which allows her to develop serenity and self-confidence,



Some readers could not put it down because they wanted to know how it continues. There is a suspense about whether the relationship will be possible, whether the woman will finally decide to leave her country, also about how she solves the issues of family and work.
