The themes of art, literature and liberty help re-create the romance of the Renaissance. This thirst for knowledge also becomes a threat to the unbridled powers that be. Soon, what should be a time for expanding the mind turns into a time when speaking your mind can lead to the loss of your head. In spite of being trapped in a time of tyranny and terror, many find comfort in their belief that love and honor are stronger than hatred and intolerance.
(When Love finds you it changes everything…) (Possible credit song lyrics.)
Edmund and Genevieve find a better world in one another, and their love story is woven throughout. Love teaches us, that some things never die, that we all leave a legacy, woven by the threads that touch our hearts and makes us better human beings. Rebirth will reveal, in spite of an emotional roller coaster, that love can help us rise above all that we fear. Rebirth will ultimately inspire all who know the true power of love and honor.
As a little boy, Edmund loses his faith in humanity when he witnesses the beheading of innocents. Now, as a young man, this womanizing pacifist seeks to escape the pain of his past through pursuits of pleasure. He finds unexpected love in the the eyes of an extraordinary young woman and discovers a genuine respect for men who are willing to give up everything for the sake of honor. He does not share their faith, but believes in their right to defend their families and and the freedom to speak their conscience. He can no longer run from his fear, nor close his eyes to the terror unfolding around him.
Wish List: Henry Cavill, Ben Barnes, Steven Strait, Emmanuel Leconte, Hugh Dancy.
The niece of the Prince de Conde, Genevieve’s youth does not reflect her depth of intelligence and wisdom well beyond her years. She feels the weight of the world on her shoulders and has a heart of gold that she tries her best to hide. Often portraying herself as aloof to keep from getting hurt, she is empathic to the pain and cruelty in the world. Edmund wins her heart, when he opens his own to her and shares his fears and pain of his past. Edmund will teach her to trust in true love, and she will help him find his purpose and the meaning of honor.
