Read by Samuel West.
It is 1942. London is blacked out, but France is under a greater darkness, as the Vichy regime clings ever closer to the Nazi occupier in their "danse macabre".
From Edinburgh, Charlotte Gray, a volatile but determined young woman, travels south. In London she conceives a dangerous passion for an English airman, then moves on to France and the small town of Lavaurette on an errand for a British organisation helping the Resistance, and for her own private purposes.
As the men, women and children of Lavaurette prepare to meet their terrible destiny, the truth of what took place in Occupied France is finally revealed.
