HAN­NAH, A US POST­DOC­TORAL RE­SEARCHER, has moved to Paris to re­search and un­der­stand the lives of women who in­hab­ited the city dur­ing the Ger­man occupation in World War II. She en­coun­ters Tariq, a Mo­roc­can teenager who has run away from his fam­ily in Tang­iers in the hope of find­ing out more about his mother, who was born in Paris. This beau­ti­ful novel is Se­bas­tian Faulks at his best: filled with his­tor­i­cal de­tails and a host of in­ter­est­ing, orig­i­nal char­ac­ters who will cap­ture your heart.
