The new novel from the winner of the 2014 Festival of Romantic Fiction's Best Historical Novel award.
June 1940. As Paris, the City of Light, approaches its darkest hour, a young woman treads the line between survival and collaboration.
Londoner Cora Masson has reinvented herself as Coralie de Lirac, using a false claim to aristocratic birth to launch herself as a fashionable milliner. When the Germans invade, the influence of a high-ranking lover saves her business. But in striking this pact, she retains her position as designer to a style-hungry elite, but becomes hostage to a life of plenty in a city that is starving to death.
As one by one her friends 'disappear' to unknown fates, will Coralie be brave enough to abandon her passion and join the Parisian Resistance?
