Letters discovered in a tin box hidden in the foundation of a small cottage in Normandy reveal a terrible secret, a desperate whisper between the lines. Antoine’s world was collapsing.
His beautiful Marianne, his precious daughter Ariéle, missing. The lives of hundreds – perhaps thousands – of allied soldiers preparing to storm Juno Beach on D-Day literally are in his hands.
The Gestapo hunt him as a traitor – the French resistance as a collaborator. As chaos erupts all around him, Antoine must choose – to find Marianne and Ariéle, or face Hell even if it means he could lose his family, his only friend, and his life.
