Summary
Suite Française meets The Fugitive as two strangers face a deadly race to escape the Nazis in 1941. She is a celebrated writer stranded in Paris after her French lover is killed fighting the German invasion. He is a volatile young man with a deadly secret, fleeing Nazi-controlled Austria. Only the Nazis could bring them together. Armed with a precious first edition of Finnegan's Wake and a stash of even more precious Chesterfield cigarettes, Eleanor Gorton Clarke is set to flee Paris. But when a stranger kills two German soldiers to save her life, Eleanor is forced to join the enigmatic Hink on the run. From vastly different backgrounds, at first the unlikely pair despise each other. But all their differences are swept aside as the deadly pursuit escalates and a powerful attraction finally erupts between them. As the Gestapo closes the net, a heartbreaking discovery forces the great romantic novelist to experience what she had thought she knew all about - the true nature of love
