Matthew Hammond is a British military officer posted to the European theater during World War II. He sustained a serious injury on the front lines, so bad, in fact, that it cost him a lung. Now he is back in England, unable to fight, but he continues to serve his country by training new resistance fighters.
Â Â Â One of the recruits under his command is Madeleine, a spellbinding, impassioned French-Canadian with eyes the âburnished brown of whiskey.â Despite military convention discouraging romance, they fall deeply in love, and Matthew is torn about putting Madeleineâs life in danger. He already has one tragic affair with a Resistance fighter burdening his heartâhis former lover, Celestine, was killed because her assassination of a German doctor went awry.
Â Â But the Allies are mustering all their resources for crucial beach landings in Normandy, and Matthew knows his unit will need to play a role. It will be a very dangerous mission: parachuting Madeleine in behind the Nazi lines. As she progresses through the training with her fellow recruits, Matthew can only hope that the skills he has taught her will keep her safe when the drop finally arrives. Drawing on true historical events, Watson delivers a tense, vivid tale of love during wartime, when the fates of men and women are caught in the sweep of history.
