The Soldier's Wife, Paperback Book


`A riveting story of betrayal' -Stylist 1940, GUERNSEY Vivienne de la Mare waits nervously for the bombs to drop.

Instead comes quiet surrender and insidious occupation.

Nothing is safe any more. As her husband fights on the front line, Vivienne's facade as the perfect wife begins to crack.

Her new life is one where the enemy lives next door.

Small acts of kindness from one Nazi soldier feel like a betrayal.

But how can you hate your enemy when you know his name, when he makes you feel alive, when everything else is dying around you? It's time for Vivienne to decide: collaboration or resistance.

But, in the darkest hours of history, no choices are simple. 'Stunning and evocative...utterly beguiling' Rosamund Lupton
