A powerful emotional dual narrative novel about the resiliency of the human spirit, the power of a mother's love and the many complex layers of the heart, especially its capacity to forgive. This will appeal to fans of Kathryn Hughes's THE KEY and Lily Graham's THE PARIS SECRET.
Love burns brightest in the darkest times
When Caroline Williams wakes up in Paris with no memory of her past, she finds that returning to the life she has forgotten is harder than she thought. Even her cavernous apartment on rue Cler seems to hold no clues...
As she searches, Caroline discovers a hidden stack of letters written by a young mother, Celine, during the Second World War. Captivated by Celine's desperate love for both her daughter and her missing lover, and the haunting glimpses of Paris under Nazi occupation, Caroline begins to realise she may have more in common with Celine that she could ever imagine.
What dark secrets are harboured within the walls of her picture-perfect Parisian home?
And could uncovering the truth about Celine unlock Caroline's own...?
The compelling and evocative new historical novel from the international bestselling author Sarah Jio. Perfect for fans of THE KEY by Kathryn Hughes, THE PARISIANS by Marius Gabriel and THE PARIS SECRET by Lily Graham.
