Notes A story of female friendship, longing and sacrifice through war and loss
A forgotten manuscript that threatens to unravel the past. Fresnes Prison, 1940. Former maid at a luxury villa on the Riviera, Margot Bisset, finds herself in a prison cell with writer and French Resistance fighter, Josephine Murant. Together, they are transferred to a work camp in Germany for four years, where the secrets they share will bind them for generations to come. Contemporary Paris. Evie Black lives in Paris with her teenage son Hugo above her botanical bookshop, La Maison Rustique. Life would be so sweet if only Evie were not mourning the great love of her life. When a letter arrives regarding the legacy of her husband's great-aunt, Josephine Murant, Evie clutches at an opportunity to spend one last magical summer with her son. They travel together to Josephine's house, now theirs, on the Cote d'Azur. Here, Evie unravels the official story of this famous novelist and the truth of a murder a lifetime ago. The redemptive beauty of nature and the promise of new love offer light at the end of the tunnel in this stirring novel delving into Europe's past.
