About the book:

Selected as one of Love Reading’s Books of the Year 2017

“A story to savour, complete with wonderful settings stretching from Paris to the glorious countryside of southern France” Dinah Jefferies, Number One Sunday Times bestselling author of The Tea Planter’s Wife

Since her teenage daughter went missing four years ago, Kurtiz Ross has blamed and isolated herself. Until, out of the blue, Lizzie is sighted in Paris.

But within hours of her arrival, Kurtiz sees the City of Light plunged into terror.

Amid the fear and chaos, a hand reaches out. A sympathetic stranger offers to help a terrified mother find her daughter.

The other woman’s kindness – and her stories of her own love and loss in post-war Provence – shine unexpected light into the shadows.

The night may hold the answers to a mystery – but dare Kurtiz believe it could also bring a miracle?

Closing date: 8th March 2018
