A captivating novel placed in a time when ordinary people were capable of doing extraordinary things.
As she prepares to say goodbye to her husband, Vianne Mauric says goodbye as he heads for the front. She doesn’t think that the Nazis will invade her country… but they do, in droving hordes of marching soldiers, in convoys of trucks and tanks, by airplanes that fill the skies and bomb the innocent. When a German captain takes over Vianne’ s house, she and her daughter have to live with the Germans or lose their home. Without food, money, or hope, as danger increases all around them, she must make one impossible decision after another to keep her loved ones safe.

Vianne‘s younger sister, Isabelle, has a rebellious spirit and is searching for purpose with all her youthful passion. As thousands of Parisians march towards the unknown terrors of World War II, she meets Gäetan, a partisan who believes that the French can fight the Germans from within France, and falls in love as only youth can… completely. But when he betrayed her, Isabelle joined the Resistance and never looked back, risking her life again and again to save others.
“This book may be emotional and nerve-racking. Love and hope mixed with fear and suffering. The story follows two siblings, Vianne and Isabella, and how they each react when faced with a major crisis.”
