An American foreign correspondent finds herself in love, and in danger, in this novel that "presents startlingly vivid images of life in Hitler's Europe" (The New York Times).

Rose Manon grew up in the mountains of Nevada, and is now working as a journalist in New York. In 1935, she is awarded her dream job: foreign correspondent. Posted to Paris, she is soon entangled in romance, an unsolved murder, and the desperation of a looming war.Assigned to the Berlin desk, Manon is forced to grapple with her hidden identity as a Jew, the mistrust of her lover, and an unwelcome visitor on the eve of Kristallnacht. And on the day before World War II is declared, she must choose who will join her on the last train to Paris . . .This carefully researched historical novel reads like a suspense thriller, and interweaves real-life figures into the story, offering "a poignant glimpse into the tensions and anxieties of prewar Europe" (Kirkus Reviews).

"WWII enthusiasts may appreciate this quieter evocative look at a much-examined era." --Publishers Weekly
