The Lavender Keeper by Fiona McIntosh
The Lavender Keeper by Fiona McIntosh is set in the Second World War and is a moving story of action and adventure, heartbreak and passion, devotion and treachery from an internationally best-selling author.
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 and 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 don’t count on is meeting each other. When they come together at the height of the Paris occupation, German traitors are plotting to change the course of history. 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 novel perfect for rainy days or dark nights when the only place one wants to be is tucked up warm with a good book!
