Product Description:

A tale of love and war, Transgression by James W. Nichol is part romance, part mystery, and part riveting historical novel set during World War Two in Europe and in North America in the years directly following the terrible conflict. Nichol--winner of the Arthur Ellis Award and shortlisted for the UK's Gold Dagger Award for his debut novel Midnight Cab--tells the haunting story of a young French woman undone by love during the Nazi occupation of her country and branded a "horizontal collaborator" after its liberation. Beautifully written and unforgettable, Transgression is a novel about secrets and survival and the high price that must be paid for passion.
