Sydney's Bleu is the first book published by Hilaire Wellness and Beauty Clinics (Spa Li Cia). We are excited to share this novel with our clients and our community. We hope you'll enjoy it.
At the tender age of 5, Sydney convinces her grandmother that she’s ready to take her spirituality to the next level and partakes in a water baptism. On the day that she confesses her love for God, she returns home to witness domestic violence that she blames herself for. Sydney’s future is uncertain as she struggles with depression along the way and battles through several toxic relationships. Her journey takes her to Europe, where she tries to establish her own identity and seeks to start a new life in France only to be met with numerous challenges. Sydney realizes that her life is spiraling out of control, so she turns to God in search for guidance.
Sydney's life is changed when she travels to Haiti and discovers the untold history of the first free independent black nation. Sydney experiences Haitian culture, love, and kindness and is intrigued by the simplistic life within the rural Haitian village, Sydney gets a little bit closer to finding her purpose as she manages to steal tiny moments of peace found within newly acquired friendships, picking and eating fruit from lush trees, and enjoying all the benefits of the bleu river.
Notes from The Mistress is part two of Sydney’s journey to find love. Like
Sydney’s Bleu, it is also inspired by true events.
Sydney Ann Marie has had her share of challenges. Growing up, dating and
finding her way in the business world have all presented Sydney with many
opportunities to experience the joys and pains of becoming a woman. Sydney’s
free spirit takes her back to France and many other distant lands as she desires
to study culture, history and a foreign language. Sydney’s life takes a turn
when her longtime friend, Christophe, asks for her hand in marriage. With the
youthful ways of thinking behind her, Sydney is now faced with yet another
serious decision about her future. She bares the full weight of the decision and
does not take it lightly. Her only desire is for a loving God-centered
commitment. The relationship between Sydney and Christophe evolves with
twists, turns and travel but there’s one unexpected force presenting a
problem, “The Mistress”. Late nights, packed bags, and hard conversations
begin to take a toll on Sydney’s heart as she contemplates her priority with
Christophe. Their love, values and integrity are tested as they confront this
weight between them.
Notes from the Mistress gives a voice to the often unspoken intruder within
relationships. It addresses the push and pull for a sense of self while nurturing
oneness as a couple. Sydney and Christophe show us how it is done; how
balance is found, how peace is restored and how to love.
