Publisher's Summary

In 1942, Charlotte Gray, a young Scottish woman, goes to occupied France on a dual mission: to run an apparently simple errand for a British special operations group and to search for her lover, an English airman called Peter Gregory, who has gone missing in action. In the small town of Lavaurette, Sebastian Faulks presents a microcosm of France and its agony in "the black years". Here is the full range of collaboration, from the tacit to the enthusiastic, as well as examples of extraordinary courage and altruism. Through the local resistance chief, Julien, Charlotte meets his father, a Jewish painter whose inspiration has failed him.

In Charlotte's friendship with both men, Faulks opens up the theme of false memory and of paradises, both national and personal, that appear irredeemably lost. In a series of shocking narrative climaxes in which the full extent of French collusion in the Nazi holocaust is delineated, Faulks brings the story to a resolution of redemptive love. In the delicacy of its writing, the intimacy of its characterisation and its powerful narrative scenes of harrowing public events, Charlotte Gray is a worthy successor to Birdsong.

    "Love fights to live on another day"

    Romantic and exciting, this book carried me along with it's story, and once again I too fell in love .
    Such a great story, that kept me engaged and wanting more. I felt each emotion and each little hint of fear as I too was carried on this journey.
