Description

Author Marianne Petit mixes true life experiences with fiction to create a suspenseful tale of intrigue and romance set in the early days of war-torn France. In 1940's Paris, both rich and poor are thrust together - a mixed society struggling to survive. American born Yvette Matikunas, one of the privileged few, goes underground with a deathbed promise to her grandfather that has her roaming the streets of France with a dangerous message. She quickly learns that no one is who they seem to be and trust is a thing of her past. Injured in battle while trying to save the life of one of his men, Colonial Andre Rinaldo is disillusioned by a shell-shocked country and a weak government. Persuaded to go underground and unite his fellow compatriots by forming resistance groups, he meets the beautiful blonde Yvette whose determination to free France from foreign dictatorship is as strong as his. In the middle of espionage and clandestine rendezvous, they form a partnership that deepens even under the ever-present threat of arrest. But with America's interest in the war building in the background all Americans are finally ordered to leave the country. Will Yvette return to the States, or will Andre persuade her to stay and fight for love?"show more
