Five stars!’ Reviewer ‘Daisy Wood skillfully navigates between two timelines, and her descriptions of the war are really masterful.’ Reviewer ‘The perfect blend of historical fiction and espionage.’ Reviewer ‘Beautifully written… I highly recommend this treasure!’ Reviewer From an exciting new voice in historical fiction comes a gripping and emotional novel! Daisy Wood worked in publishing for some years before leaving to concentrate on her own writing. She has had several children’s books published, both historical and contemporary, and is happiest rooting about in the London Library on the pretext of research. She lives in south London and when not locked away in her study can be seen in various city parks, running after a rescue Pointer with a Basset Hound in tow. This is her second novel. • Set against a Paris sinking deeper into Occupation, this is a gripping and emotional time slip that crosses seas and centuries as past merges with present to uncover the truth about a very special bookshop, and the secrets it keeps hidden. • An exciting new voice in historical fiction, Daisy Wood effortlessly evokes the sights and smells of 1940s Paris – a city that, though devastated by war, was determined to uphold its core principles of light and love. • A novel with huge international appeal, with European and American settings and characters, and fascinating revelations to satiate the ongoing appetite for untold stories of war.
