This copy was kindly sent by NetGalley.


This is the story of Sister Bernard and her love affair with a German soldier during World War II.

Sister Bernard was obliged to face war's endurances since the convent where she used to live was abandoned and she was left behind with three elderly nuns.

When she meets the passion oh her life, her beliefs are shaken.

In the meantime she has to face the challenge of surviving in a rural village in the South of France during the German occupation and being a French citizen.

Even if the author makes use of writing in the past and in the future, the reader is avid to know what will happen with poor Sister Bernard whose only sin was to seek their happiness.

A very say but touching story, which deserves to be read.

Chrissie OK, I have been considering reading this book. Do you recomend it for me? I am worried that it will be too religious in subject matter......
