Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author comes this extraordinary masterpiece of historical fiction that will have you wiping tears from your face.

Paris, 1939. While working at the Louvre, Éliane Dufort falls for talented painter Xavier. But when the Nazis occupy the city, Xavier leaves for England and Éliane must send her sisters to the country. Broken-hearted, she finds herself working with the mysterious Rose Valland on a dangerous secret mission for the French Resistance: to record all the priceless national treasures the Germans are stealing.

Present Day. Desperate to escape her grief, Remy Lang arrives at a stunning private estate on the French Riviera. While working on her vintage fashion business, she discovers a catalogue of artworks stolen during World War II and is shocked to see a painting that hung on her childhood bedroom wall in Sydney. Who is her family, really? And does the Riviera house hold more secrets than Remy is ready to face?

Lush, engrossing and deeply moving, this is the story of the brave women who worked against the Nazis, told by the international best-selling author of The Paris Secret and The French Photographer.

"The novel kept me at night, turning the pages faster and faster." (Janet Skeslien Charles, author of The Paris Library)

"A vivid, nuanced and deeply moving depiction of women's courage in the face of unimaginable danger, sacrifice and loss. A superlative work of historical fiction - Natasha Lester's finest yet." (Christine Wells, author of Sisters of the Resistance)
