Someone saves your life. How far will you go to repay the debt? Summer, 1942, Nazi-occupied France. A nervous young man sits on a train; his simple mission: to deliver a message on behalf of the resistance. German guards ask for his papers and his nerves give way. An older woman, sitting opposite, intervenes and rescues him from the clutches of the Gestapo. Paris, 1968. The young man is now the most successful music conductor in France; a household name throughout the land. Yet, he still wonders, 26 years on, why did the woman on the train intercede on his behalf? Without her, he knows his life would have turned out very differently. He owes her everything. Unexpectedly, in the midst of the 1968 Parisian riots, he receives a letter from her, begging him to come to her aid. Honor-bound, he gladly offers to return the favor. When he realizes precisely what repaying his debt entails, he faces a dilemma that threatens to ruin his career. Torn between those he loves and his sense of honor, his life rapidly spirals out of control. Who exactly was The Woman on the Train? Historical fiction with heart and drama.
