The French Promise

ebook
At the end of the Second World War, Luc and Lisette Ravens have somehow survived their time as a French resistance fighter and a British spy.? Haunted by the horrors they have seen, instead of going home to Provence, they cast their fate to the winds and set sail for Australia, hoping to rebuild their lives planting lavender fields in a land that's full of promise.
But the past cannot be evaded so simply.? When a Swiss law student learns a confronting truth that connects his family with the Ravens on the other side of the world, he finds himself holding the key to his own future, and to Luc's troubled past.
Luc must return to France to fulfil the promises by which he has been bound - to his beloved Lisette, to his family, and to the one man responsible for ripping so much from his life.? Luc must lay to rest the ghosts of years gone by so that they all might live and love again.
From the southern English coast to the rugged farmland of northern Tasmania and the vibrant streets of postwar Paris, The French Promise is an exhilarating story of courage, passion and peril by a phenomenal Australian storyteller.
