In England in 1944, an American volunteers to pilot a plane carrying special agents to their drop spot over Normandy. Their plane is shot down, and only she and five agents survive. Now they are on the run for their lives.
This is the mesmerizing story of how Velva Jean Hart, a beautiful aviatrix from the hills of Appalachia, becomes Clementine Roux, a daring woman crossing France with her team on a mission to capture an operative known only as Swan. Once they reach Paris, Clementine works as a spy with the Resistance and falls in love with the handsome agent Ãmile. When Ãmile asks Clementine to get herself arrested so she can help spring Swan from prison, the question is, will Paris be liberated before Clementine is tortured in the most horrific prison in Paris? Will Ãmile and the team save her? In Romainville prison, Clementine discovers the depths of human cruelty, the triumph of her own spirit, and the courage of her team, who will stop at nothing to carry out their mission.
