Synopsis

The USA Today bestseller 'A compelling and powerful read' Gill Thompson, USA Today bestselling author of The Child on Platform One



'A powerful and thoughtful novel' Louise Fein, author of Daughter of the Reich



'A gripping tale of wartime sacrifice and innocence lost ... in the cause of freedom' Jina Bacarr, author of Her Lost Love







1942, France. As the war in Europe rages on, Adele Ambeh dreams of a France that is free from the clutches of the new regime. The date of her marriage to a ruthless man is drawing closer, and she only has one choice - she must run.



With the help of her mother, Adele flees to Lyon, seeking refuge at the Sisters of Notre Dame de la Compassion. From the outside this is a simple nunnery, but the sisters are secretly aiding the French Resistance, hiding and supplying the fighters with weapons.



While it is not quite the escape Adele imagined, she is drawn to the nuns and quickly finds herself part of the resistance. But her new role means she must return to Vichy, and those she left behind, no matter the cost.



Each day is filled with a different danger and as she begins to fall for another man, Adele's entire world could come crashing down around her.



Adele must fight for her family, her own destiny, as well as her country.

Andie Newton is an American writer living in Washington State with her husband and two boys. She writes female-driven historical fiction set in WWII. The Girl I Left Behind was her first novel. She would love to say she spends her free time gardening and cooking, but she's killed everything she's ever planted and set off more fire alarms than she cares to admit. Andie does, however, love spending time with her family, ultra trail running, and drinking copious amounts of coffee.
