About this deal

If this book is on your reading list, please read it and I really hope that you'll find things that I possibly missed! However, after she is taken in by the Police and brought home by Herr Schmidt, he makes it perfectly clear that she leave Paris and for which he has arranged a pass.

One is current about Juliette, an American on holiday in Paris with her husband who she’s just discovered is having an affair. The fear of the citizens, the “disappearing” Jewish people and the strength of the human spirit to hope and resist in the face of terrible odds. There were people everywhere who needed help, once you opened your eyes – and found the courage not to look away.So kind in a time of such cruelty 💕 There's a beautiful prayer that Jacques learned a child and said it often throughout his life,even as he was being arrested! With his wife forced into hiding, Jacques must stand by and watch as the Nazis take away everything he holds dear. After Mathilde leaves, he begins helping the resistance, he hides boxes, supplies, people and eventually Jewish children.

It’s a tale of heartbreak and hope as the two lead characters from both timelines are on a journey of self discovery. Amazingly calm; fifteen minutes before their airport taxi arrives the following morning she drops the bombshell, typical though, he turns it round to make out it's all her fault! With thanks to NetGalley and Avon Books UK, for my digital ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.I also really enjoy World War 2 historical fiction and enjoyed the historical backdrop of the half of the book set in the 1940s. At first I was intrigued by how this cliche romance was going to intersect with the story of a couple in occupied France standing up to the Nazi’s.
