As the communist empire disintegrates, American historian Leon Meredith arrives in Paris to research letter written by sixteen-year-old Alonzo Redman, a union solider in the Civil War. Caught up in the affairs of his neighbours in the Marais district, Leon begins to question the purpose of his life and the nature of truth. And in the next street, distrustful of the unquestioning euphoria at eastern Europe's new freedom, the woman once known as Annalisa Vogel is moved to record her experiences as a young girl fleeing the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia. Dramatic, haunting and unforgettable, Ann Swinfen's fourth novel is set to transcend her previous critical acclaim.
