This time-slip story will keep you reading late into the night, and amaze you with its tale of huge courage about those who hid invaluable paintings from the Nazis.
In the darkest days of the war in Paris,Éliane helps Rose Valland in her French Resistance work saving France's precious art from the Nazis at huge risk. She struggles to get over her love for Xavier, a young artist, but when she sees him with high-ranking Nazis, she wonders if he has thrown in his lot with the other side. She also has to pretend to fall for the Nazi Konig, a hard task for this young, innocent girl.
A few generations later, Remy escapes to her house on the beautiful French Riviera, and starts to wonder about the truth of a mysterious painting there. Battling deep grief, she meets handsome Adam, who is also suffering from past hurts. Can she discover the truth, and, more importantly, can she open her heart to love again?
