Description

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.

‘There is no shortage of dramatic tension, excitement or persuasive detail… Faulks is a prodigiously talented writer’ New York Times
