Cora Mayhew is not only trapped in Paris in June 1940, but getting a letter to her family in America will be all but impossible with World War II underway. Cora left the safety of her home, and her adoptive parents, with her strong desire to find her birth mother. While she loves the family that has raised her since birth, she has never been able to get over the fact that she needs to find the truth about her mother.
Not only does Cora find herself in danger time and again, she has made enemies along the way. However, she makes a surprising ally in a German soldier named Max Heller. Can Cora trust Max when he offers to help her?
When Cora gets closer than she could’ve imagined while trying to learn about her mother, she is not only fighting the desire to return home to America, she’s also fighting growing feelings towards Max. If she cannot return home safely then, at the very least, she would like a letter to get to her family so that they will know that she is safe.
This compelling and memorable book by Kate Eastham combines excellent historical fiction and the horrors of WWII with that of the romance that brews between Cora and Max. Danger is never far behind, especially since they should be sworn enemies. Meanwhile, Cora never lets up in her determination to find out about her birth mother. Not only does Cora experience dangers along the way, when she loses contact with her aunt during the invasion, her resilience shone through.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
