'Are you German or are you French? Are you working against Germany or for it? Are you telling me the truth, or are you a very accomplished liar?'

Lavender farmer Luc Bonet is raised by a wealthy Jewish family in the foothills of the French Alps. When the Second World War breaks out he joins the French Resistance, leaving behind his family's fortune, their home overrun by soldiers, their lavender fields in disarray.

Lisette Forestier is on a mission of her own: to work her way into the heart of a senior German officer – and to bring down the Reich in any way she can. What Luc and Lisette hadn't counted on was meeting each other.

'Are you German or are you French? Are you working against Germany or for it? Are you telling me the truth, or are you a very accomplished liar?'

Lavender farmer Luc Bonet is raised by a wealthy Jewish family in the foothills of the French Alps. When the Second World War breaks out he joins the French Resistance, leaving behind his family's fortune, their home overrun by soldiers, their lavender fields in disarray.

Lisette Forestier is on a mission of her own: to work her way into the heart of a senior German officer – and to bring down the Reich in any way she can. What Luc and Lisette hadn't counted on was meeting each other.

When they come together at the height of the Paris occupation, German traitors are plotting to change the course of history. But who, if anyone, can be trusted? As Luc and Lisette's emotions threaten to betray them, their love may prove the greatest risk of all.

From the fields of Provence to the streets of wartime Paris, The Lavender Keeper is an extraordinary, moving story of action and adventure, heartbreak and passion, devotion and treachery from an internationally bestselling author.

Action, intrigue, romance and deception, this book has it all. The lives of three main characters intertwine during the Second World War. Luc is born to German parents, but adopted and raised by a Jewish French family, a fact he doesn't find out until the German occupation of France. To avenge the death of his family, he joins the French Resistance. Lisette is a linguist, fluent in French and German, accepted by the British Command as a spy in France. Her mission is to emotionally entrap a senior German officer. Markus Killian makes up the third character in this love triangle.The author manages to humanise the German soldier in her character development, giving us an insight into his feelings of Nazi ethics. Each of these characters are far from the stereotypical norms with each distracted from their duty by their own emotions.

I want to know what happens next for these characters! - Alison (QBD)
