Synopsis

A remarkable story of a Scottish woman in Occupied France pursuing a perilous mission of her own



FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER BIRDSONG



In 1942, Charlotte Gray, a young Scottish woman, heads for Occupied France on a dual mission - officially, to run an apparently simple errand for a British special operations group and unofficially, to search for her lover, an English airman missing in action. She travels to the village of Lavaurette, dyeing her hair and changing her name to conceal her identity. As the people in the small town prepare to meet their terrible destiny, Charlotte must come face-to-face with the harrowing truth of what took place in Europe's darkest years, and confront a terrifying secret that threatens to cast its shadow over the remainder of her days.

Staff Choice

In 1942, Charlotte Gray, an ordinary young Scottish woman, is dropped into Occupied France on a vital mission: officially, to run a simple errand for a British special operations group, and unofficially to search for her lover, Peter, an English RAF pilot missing in action.

The France she remembers from her youth is unrecognisable. Some greet the occupying Nazis with joy – others with utter terror. Charlotte forms a close bonds with Resistance member Julien and his artist father Levade. Unable to find Peter, Charlotte decides to stay on in France. She is drawn into helping Julien hide two small Jewish boys, Andre and Jacob, who's parents have been murdered in the death camps of Nazi Europe. If they are caught, the boys will surely be 'deported to the East'....

This is a beautiful book. The detail is outstanding: occupied France leaps right off the page. If you enjoyed Birdsong, this is a must-read.
