Description
An aristocratic French family, a legendary chateau, and buried secrets with the power to destroy two generations torn between duty and desire.

"La Cote dAzur, 1998: "In the sun-dappled south of France, Emilie de la Martinieres, the last of her gilded line, inherits her childhood home, a magnificent chateau and vineyard. With the property comes a mountain of debt--and almost as many questions . . .

"Paris, 1944: "A bright, young British office clerk, Constance Carruthers, is sent undercover to Paris to be part of Churchills Special Operations Executive during the climax of the Nazi occupation. Separated from her contacts in the Resistance, she soon stumbles into the heart of a prominent family who regularly entertain elite members of the German military even as they plot to liberate France. But in a city rife with collaborators and rebels, Constances most difficult decision may be determining whom to trust with her heart.

As Emilie discovers what really happened to her family during the war and finds a connection to Constance much closer than she suspects, the chateau itself may provide the clues that unlock the mysteries of her past, present, and future. Here is a dazzling novel of intrigue and passion from one of the worlds most beloved storytellers.
