Summary

In spring 1918, Lieutenant Colin Mabry, a British soldier working with MI8 after suffering injuries on the front, receives a message by carrier pigeon. It is from Jewel Reyer, the woman he once loved and who saved his life-a woman he believed to be dead. Traveling to France to answer her urgent summons, he desperately hopes this mission will ease his guilt and restore the courage he lost on the battlefield. Colin is stunned, however, to discover the message came from Jewel's half sister, Johanna. Johanna, who works at a dovecote for French Army Intelligence, found Jewel's diary and believes her sister is alive in the custody of a German agent. With spies everywhere, Colin is skeptical of Johanna, but as they travel across France and Spain, a tentative trust begins to grow between them. When their pursuit leads them straight into the midst of a treacherous plot, danger and deception turn their search for answers into a battle for their lives.

Publisher's Weekly Review

A wounded soldier working in intelligence must leave England for Germany to help the woman who saved him in this rousing tale from Breslin (High as the Heavens). Lt. Colin Mabry lost his hand during WWI and now works deciphering coded messages for British intelligence. In the spring of 1918, he receives an encrypted message from Jewel Reyer, the French woman who saved his life after he was wounded in combat and to whom he promised to return, asking him to come back to France. Upon arrival, he is surprised to discover that it is not Jewel who is waiting for him, but rather a woman claiming to be her younger sister, Johanna. Johanna tells Colin that Jewel was taken from their village by a German officer and begs him to help find her. Colin is determined to find Jewel and marry her, but as he and Johanna spend a week traveling under the cover story that they are married, he begins to fall in love with her. The stakes rise as their search makes them a target of both German and British spies. Through it all, Colin maintains his faith in God and belief in the miracles around him and encourages Johanna to do the same. Blending spycraft with a story of romance forged under the pressure of a life-or-death rescue mission, this action-packed historical will appeal to fans of historical thrillers and will keep readers guessing until the final moments.
