Publisher's Summary

A stunning debut novel of a young American woman who becomes a spy in Paris during World War II. 

May 1940: Fleeing a glamorous Manhattan life built on lies, Claire Harris arrives in Paris with a romantic vision of starting anew. But she didn't anticipate the sight of Nazi soldiers marching under the Arc de Triomphe. Her plans smashed by the German occupation, the once-privileged socialite's only option is to take a job in a flower shop under the tutelage of a sophisticated Parisian florist. 

In exchange for false identity papers, Claire agrees to aid the French Resistance. Despite the ever-present danger, she comes to love the enduring beauty of the City of Light, exploring it in the company of Thomas Grey, a mysterious Englishman working with the Resistance. Claire's bravery and intelligence make her a talented operative, and slowly her values shift as she witnesses the courageous spirit of the Parisians. 

But deception and betrayal force her to flee once more - this time to fight for the man she loves and what she knows is right. Claire just prays she has the heart and determination to survive long enough to one day see Paris again....

A superb mix of drama and intrigue

I enjoyed every minute of this book. Superbly written and with a story that became more gripping as it progressed, to the point where I was quite resentful about having to do other things that took me away from it! Susan Bennett’s narration was excellent, as was her ability to bring the many different characters alive. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a mix of drama and intrigue. More please Lynn!
