The French Girl's War
The year is 1939; Germany has invaded Poland and France has now entered the war.
Sophie Claveaux is an eighteen-year-old Jewish farm girl who carries a curse. Her mother died giving birth to her and her father has long suffered the loss. Blaming herself, Sophie decides to change her fate and study art in Paris. But before she can enact her plan, her father joins the war, renewing her fear that her curse will always prevail.
Forced to abandon her dreams of Paris, Sophie is sent to live in safety with her grandmother—only to learn there are no safe places in a time of war.
Now, Sophie must fight to protect her grandmother, her new home, and the curious blind artist who could change everything.
A compelling coming-of-age drama set against the backdrop of World War II, The French Girl’s War is a story of unexpected courage and surprising hope.
