May 1915. After tragedy strikes during the Second Battle of Artois, Frenchman Julian Olivier will do anything to get out of the trenches. So when British Intelligence recruits him to spy behind enemy lines, he jumps at the opportunity. Just before he begins, however, he has a chance encounter with a young French woman who leaves his heart marked for the remainder of the war—even if he doesn’t know her name.

Warren Flynn is a Canadian airborne hero, and dogfights with the Germans are all in a day’s work. Second only to his love of flying is his fascination with Claire Donovan, the daughter of an American munitions manufacturer living in Paris. Warren flies Julian into Germany and soon receives orders to post the Allies’ newest operative—an attractive peasant woman named Evette—in Claire’s home.

As a dangerous ring of spies and saboteurs threatens to turn the war against the Allies, Julian discovers goodness in his enemies’ hearts. But even if he survives, will he ever be reunited with the woman whose memory he can’t erase? Will Warren survive the war, and will Evette unearth the infiltrator in her own territory before it’s too late?

    Loved this historical WWI story! I haven’t read much in the WWI era, so I wasn’t familiar with a lot of the historical details surrounding this story, but I was drawn right in to these characters and their roles in the unfolding war. The author really showed so many aspects to the war – how it affected people in all walks of life and on both sides of the war and how the line between “good” and “evil” isn’t always black and white. I loved how the characters and their various stories gradually intersected more and more with each other. Even though there was plenty of heartbreak and tragedy, there was an ultimate message of hope and friendship and love.
    I didn’t realize until the author’s note at the end that some of the characters in this story are tied to the author’s earlier WWII book “Espionage” (I guess it’s been too long since I read that!).
