Publication Date: 21/03/2012

Luc Bonet lost his family at birth and is brought up by wealthy French Jews in the foothills of the French Alps. When he is confronted with his true identity he joins the French resistance, leaving behind his family's fortune, their home overrun by soldiers, their lavender fields in tatters.Lisette Forestier is on a mission of her own, to work her way into the heart of a senior German officer – and to infiltrate the very masterminds of the Gestapo. What Luc and Lisette hadn't counted on was meeting each other. When they come together at the height of the Paris occupation German traitors are plotting to change the course of history. But who, if anyone, can be trusted, and will their emotions become their greatest betrayer of all? Set against the backdrop of turbulent WWII France, this is a rollercoaster of a read that has it all – action and adventure on every page, heartbreak and horror, love and passion, battles and treachery. And accompanying Luc every step of the way is a pouch of lavender seeds, a symbol of freedom and hope, and the promise of a new life in a faraway land…if only they can make it through.
