One woman's struggle to fight back against the enemy in order to protect the ones she loves.
When Arlette Blaise sees a German plane fly over the family farm in 1940, she's comforted by the fact that the occupying forces are far away in the north of the country. Surely the war will not reach her family in the idyllic French countryside near to the small town of Oradour-sur-Glane?
But then Saul Epstein, a young Jewish man driven from his home by the Nazis, arrives at the farm and Arlette begins to realise that her peaceful existence might be gone for good ...
A Note From the Publisher
An emotional and beautifully written debut you will not want to put down. Paperback release.
"My goodness, what an emotional roller coaster ride of a novel."
"A superbly written book that brings together the power of love both between individuals and family in many senses."
"I read a lot - and have always done so. Many of the stories have stayed with me for various reasons - but only a very few have touched my heart in a way that Angela Barton's story has!!! She truly has a gift and passion that is not often seen!"
"I thought this book was quite superb – a love story at its heart, a rural idyll destroyed, an unexpected depth of detail about real events and experiences, combined with a really powerful and totally riveting story."
