: In the summer of 1941, war abruptly intrudes into an otherwise peaceful and remote part of German Occupied France. Two British airmen engaged on a top-secret mission, are shot down, landing in the treacherous mud of a bay near La Rochelle. They are rescued by a young farm-worker whose father sets out to help them escape capture accompanied by his daughter who speaks a little English. Their bravery, however, triggers a dramatic chain of events which turn the family's world upside down and divides their close-knit community. The daughter Rose, affectionately known as Rosette, is a spirited sixteen-year-old who dreams of a better future. But as events unfold, Rose is propelled into a nightmare of imprisonment and torture, pressured to denounce her beloved father. Ma Petite Rosette is based on Rose's true story: a story of hope, unexpected compassion and courage which will enthral the reader to the very last moving page.
