It's 1942, during the Second World War, and France is occupied by the German army. These are dangerous times. Sylvie Duval, 17, forms a close friendship with Jack, an injured British airman her family is sheltering. But Jack is in danger - and he must leave France for his own safety. Sylvie is faced with difficult choices as the man she loves is smuggled out of the country.

This historical love story brings together both the past and a wonderful romance, in a warm and uplifting way. As part of the Promises series, this book is ideal for girls who are reluctant readers but want access to books with themes of their age range.
