The Supreme Victory of the Heart


a memoir of love, loss, and synchronicity


When Sharon’s French fiancé told her that an old flame was back in his life, she discovered there was more to love–and the universe–than she had dared to imagine.

Based on Sharon’s Salon essay, “When my fiancé told me about the other woman”

At 29, Sharon Hewitt was about to see her dreams come true. For the past decade, she’d been living the academic high life in New York, Paris, and Boston but struggling to feel at ease far from her rural roots and the religious faith she’d left behind in college. Now, engaged to a Frenchman and about to settle on a beautiful farm in the rolling countryside of Brittany, she felt she’d finally come home…

…until a girl her fiancé had known in high school unexpectedly resurfaced, changing everything.

The Supreme Victory of the Heart is Sharon’s candid account of the months following her French fiancé’s tearful admission that he wasn’t sure he could marry her after all, when she stood to lose not only the man she deeply loved, but the country she had inwardly adopted as her own. Torn between rage and sorrow, sympathy and steely resolve, Sharon found herself plumbing the depths of human love, as well as encountering the possibility of something she’d given up on long ago: a higher purpose behind it all. This book tells the story of her challenging personal journey, and of the intriguing synchronicities that left her with the growing suspicion that love just might be destined to emerge victorious after all.
