“This magical book tells history in a brilliant, original way for the 21st century and is a deeply moving reconstruction of an ordinary life. Thanks to Clara Beaudoux, Madeleine becomes an unforgettable heroine. I loved this book and shall read it again and again.”
Anne Sebba, author of Les Parisiennes: How the Women of Paris Lived, Loved, and Died Under Nazi Occupation
