War-torn France, and a young English girl is parachuted into the occupied territories to help set up a Resistance network while a young German officer, invalided out of action, is set to join the forces, ordered to track down and destroy any anti-German activity.
It was inevitable that Evelyn and Paul should meet; inevitable that their meeting should lead to tragedy. But out of pain came passion, out of disillusionment, love…
Elizabeth Buchan once again sets her tale against an unforgettable era in history and shows the triumph of the human spirit against everything that seeks to destroy it.

WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK
The exploits of the men and women who worked undercover during the Second World War, have inspired many writers and the SOE was a particularly fascinating organization. It is a magnetic subject, which not only encompasses all the drama of a war but also throws light on human behaviour - on supreme courage, stupidities, passion, cunning, patriotism and selflessness. I loved writing this novel and what I discovered in the course of my research changed my views on many things.
