Abstract:

Marisa Carnarvon is an enigma to her family. In 1938 she turns her back on her privileged Sydney lifestyle to become a nurse in a London hospital. With conflict looming, she moves to a Red Cross hospital in Paris, totally unprepared for the forces the approaching maelstom will unleash. In June 1940 the Germans invade Paris and the young nurse is soon pressured by the leader of the local resistance cell to work for the fledgling movement. Marisa's life becomes increasingly precarious with the arrival of a new Gestapo chief who sets out to seduce her, and the hunt for a traitor in the organisation that throws her into the resistance firing line. As the war approaches its climax, Marisa's Gestapo lover flees and the young nurse follows. He is ultimately revealed as a key operator in a resistance escape line that traverses four countries. But he has a secret which threatens to crush him. Marisa finally discovers the truth behind the man who risked his life to save others in a masterpiece of deception.
