From the bestselling author of Birdsong comes
Charlotte Gray, the remarkable story of a young
Scottish woman who becomes caught up in the effort to
liberate Occupied France from the Nazis while pursuing a
perilous mission of her own.
In blacked-out, wartime
London, Charlotte Gray develops a dangerous passion for a
battle-weary RAF pilot, and when he fails to return from a
daring flight into France she is determined to find him. In
the service of the Resistance, she travels to the village of
Lavaurette, dyeing her hair and changing her name to conceal
her identity. Here she will come face-to-face with the
harrowing truth of what took place during Europe's darkest
years, and will confront a terrifying secret that threatens
to cast its shadow over the remainder of her days. Vividly
rendered, tremendously moving, and with a narrative sweep
and power reminiscent of his novel Birdsong,
Charlotte Gray confirms Sebastian Faulks as one of
the finest novelists working today.
