Description

Discover a brilliant story of love, danger, courage and betrayal, from the internationally best-selling author of The Survivors.

1953, the South of France. The fragile peace between the West and Soviet Russia hangs on a knife edge. And one family has been torn apart by secrets and conflicting allegiances.

Eloïse Caussade is a courageous young Frenchwoman, raised on a bull farm near Arles in the Camargue. She idolises her older brother, André, and when he leaves to become an Intelligence Officer working for the CIA in Paris to help protect France, she soon follows him. Having exchanged the strict confines of her father's farm for a life of freedom in Paris, her world comes alive. 

But everything changes when André is injured - a direct result of Eloise's actions. Unable to work, André returns to his father’s farm, but Eloïse’s sense of guilt and responsibility for his injuries sets her on the trail of the person who attempted to kill him.

Eloïse finds her hometown in a state of unrest and conflict. Those who are angry at the construction of the American airbase nearby, with its lethal nuclear armaments, confront those who support it, and anger flares into violence, stirred up by Soviet agents. Throughout all this unrest, Eloïse is still relentlessly hunting down the man who betrayed her brother and his country, and she is learning to look at those she loves and at herself with different eyes. She no longer knows whom she can trust. Who is working for Soviet Intelligence and who is not? And what side do her own family lie on?

l love this author.

I have read every book Kate Furnival has written. Her characters come to life. The stories are so well written and the imagery of her words paint such graphic images. the only problem is it takes so long for a new book!

A long flat story

I’m about 9 hours into this book only because I have forced myself to listen to it - just to be done with it really. I read “The Betrayal “ and thought it was not bad , but this is just too boring. I love the way Imogen Church performs books but even she can’t save this one. Save your points.

Much ado about nothing

Either we don't understand French history post WW II or it was too fantastic. The CIA really didn't interfere with French party development, did it? Too unbelievable for me. Story was so-so. Nothing gripping actually happens until the end: rather like Hamlet -- but not as good.
