Description

Inspired by a true story, Francesca Pascal is a compelling World War II adventure from the bestselling author of Farewell Bergerac, The Cyclist and Galdir: A Slave's Tale. France, 1942: A Nazi Officer steals a Matisse painting which becomes a symbol of freedom against the oppressors. Francesca, an artist and conservator, grieving over the death of her daughter at the hands of German soldiers, flees Paris. She has only a handful of paintings and a desire for revenge she is ill-equipped to pursue. In the long hard winter that follows, she joins a group of Partisans in their battle to free France and salvage her culture. She becomes embroiled in a plot to recover Le Mur Rose, the stolen painting. The painting becomes her reason for fighting and an opportunity for revenge upon the occupying force - a force for evil. Francesca Pascal is an unforgettable wartime tale of vengeance, art theft, and intrigue.
