Night Sky by Clare Francis
In the brutal chaos of the Second World War, three people find their lives inextricably interwoven in a web of courage, betrayal and love.
Julie Lescaux, the young Englishwoman caught up in one of the most dangerous operations of the French Resistance; Paul Vasson, vicious Paris pimp turned Nazi collaborator; David Freymann, German scientist caught up in unimaginable horror, destined to lose everything except his faith in his own discovery.
Night Sky is Clare Francis' sweeping chronicle of Europe in peace and war, a tremendous floodtide of narrative that builds to a gripping and unforgettable finale.
