This HFC Book Award Gold Medal Winner is a passionate historical romance full of suspense, guilty secrets, and dilemmas, set in the captivating scene of WW2 Paris.
For 20-year-old Winter Pale, choices were never an option. Living in Paris, a British woman so far away from home, she has no other refuge to happiness than her childhood memories. When the city falls under Nazi occupation comes a time of struggle for survival; a time when love starts to bloom.
Winter's heart is torn between two men, a French Resistance fighter and an SS major, both of which are definitely books not to be judged by their covers. They are mortal enemies, and Winter knows that if she chooses one side over the next, the consequences may be dire.
As her expectations are subverted, Winter realizes that she has to choose more than the man; it is her own path in life that she must decide on. She has lived all her life in a vicious circle of fault and guilt. What if she decides to break free from it? Will love be enough to empower her regardless of the cost?
