Luc and Lisette Ravens - a former French Resistance fighter and one-time British spy - have survived the crushing war in Europe, and casting their fate to the winds, they sail to Tasmania, hoping to rebuild their lives.

In his darkest hour, law student Max Vogel learns a startling truth. A long-held family secret links him to the Ravens and he finds himself holding the key to his own future and to Luc's troubled past.

From the south coast of England to the rugged farmland of northern Tasmania and the lively streets of post-war Paris, this is an extraordinary story of courage, determination and everlasting love.

Review quote

'Lyrical and haunting ... A great read' Books Monthly: 'As before Fiona gives us a veritable variety pack of genres. There's romance, thriller and even a mini-social-study of the post-war hangovers both in Europe and further afield. It may be a thick book but the author's changes in pace and direction sweep us towards a riveting climax through a story landscape that banishes boredom. You may not have guessed, but I've become a Fiona McIntosh fan (yes, really!) and can't wait to see what she brings to us next.' - The Bookbag 'No matter what twists and turns you have in your head for this book it will not turn out as you expect. Read on' Connexion Books
