A gripping novel set in the south of France, Italy and London. The heroine Sarah reveals that she has been adopted and we flash back to her mother caught up in the Nazi invasion and reprisals in her boyfriend's family which nearly wipe out the village. We learn how she came to be adopted and she returns to France and Italy to discover the truth. Brilliantly written, it grips the reader from first page to last.
