By Kate Mosse

  • Hardback
  • £20.00

1942. Occupied France. A time of courage, betrayal, loyalty - and love.
An epic wartime novel from the No.1 bestselling author of LABYRINTH and THE MISTLETOE BRIDE.

An epic wartime novel from the No.1 bestselling author of LABYRINTH and THE MISTLETOE BRIDE.

1942, Nazi-occupied France. Sandrine, a spirited and courageous nineteen-year-old, finds herself drawn into a Resistance group in Carcassonne - codenamed 'Citadel' - made up of ordinary women who are prepared to risk everything for what is right.

And when she meets Raoul, they discover a shared passion for the cause, for their homeland, and for each other.

But in a world where the enemy now lies in every shadow - where neighbour informs on neighbour; where friends disappear without warning and often without trace - love can demand the highest price of all.
