About

Overview

A New York Times Bestselling Author

Celebrated singer Genevieve Dumont is both a star and a smokescreen. An unwilling darling of the Nazis, the chanteuse’s position of privilege allows her to go undetected as an ally to the resistance. When her estranged mother, Lillian de Rocheford, is captured by Nazis, Genevieve knows it won’t be long before the Gestapo succeeds in torturing information out of Lillian that will derail the upcoming allied invasion. The resistance movement is tasked with silencing her by any means necessary — including assassination. But Genevieve refuses to let her mother become yet one more victim of the war. Reuniting with her long-lost sister, she must find a way to navigate the perilous cross-currents of Occupied France undetected — and in time to save Lillian’s life.

“An engaging story that explores an often overlooked aspect of World War II lore. For fans of Kristin Hannah’s THE NIGHTINGALE, this page-turning novel full of suspense and excitement examines the lengths to which we are willing to go for our loved ones.”

— Library Journal

“. . . a suspenseful historical account of the women in the Résistance who used heart, body, and soul to advance the Allies plans for an invasion, despite the ironclad control of the Nazis . . . WWII history buffs will appreciate the accurate depictions and backdrop, while romantic-suspense lovers will eagerly follow Genevieve from the seashores of France to the hilltops of Germany.”
