Investigative reporter Leslie Maitland grew up enthralled by her mothers accounts of forbidden romance and harrowing flight from the Nazis. Her book is both a journalists vivid depiction of a world at war and a daughters pursuit of a haunting question: what had become of the handsome Frenchman whose picture her mother continued to treasure almost fifty years after they parted? It is a tale of memory that reporting made real and a story of undying love that crosses the borders of time.
