Product Description

Book Description

The wartime love story between a young English widow and a refugee from Nazi occupied France.

From the Back Cover

In 1940, as the shadows are lengthening over Europe, free-living artist Louis Duval decides to leave his studio in Brittany and, in his small motor boat, make the perilous journey to England. His aim is to offer his services in the continuing fight, and to help liberate his beloved France from the enemy. He reaches Dartmouth where he finds lodgings with a young widow, Barbara Hillyard.

Lieutenant-Commander Alan Powell of the Royal Navy, whose promising career was blighted by severe wounds in the previous world war, has been assigned the task of forming an undercover organisation to make clandestine boat trips across the channel to gather vital information. He enlists Louis Duval, who agrees to return to France to establish a Resistance network there. Alan, withdrawn and lonely, falls deeply in love with Barbara, but she seems to have eyes only for the attractive Frenchman...

I love everything this writer does, but I was particularly pleased with this book because it is rather different from the others. The setting is the second World War as usual but that is where the similarity ends. Don't expect a happy ending for all the characters. As always its well written in an easy style and I found it hard to put down. The housework had to wait until I had finished it! It is a must for all Mayhew fans.

A good read that also informed,albeit loosely, how the resistance network existed. It held my attention throughout the whole book,and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this genre.

I enjoyed this book but the end was strange. It was good but I have read others by the same Author that where better.
