Location(s): Paris, Brittany

Genre(s): Fiction, Historical

Era(s): WW2 onwards



Words are power. They can bring you down, lift you up, make your heart soar, make you fall in love. Or make you hate.’

Paris 1944. Elise Chevalier knows what it is to hate. Her fiance, a young French soldier, was killed by the German army at the Maginot Line. Living amongst the enemy Elise must keep her rage buried deep within.

Brittany 1963. Reaching for the old suitcase under her mother’s bed, eighteen-year-old Josephine Chevalier uncovers a secret that shakes her to the core. Determined to discover the truth, Josephine travels to Paris where she learns the story of a forbidden love as a city fought for its freedom. Of the last stolen hours before the first light of liberation. And of a betrayal so deep that it would irrevocably change the course of a young woman’s life for ever…

A powerful portrait of war and its aftermath, THE LAST HOURS IN PARIS is also a story of tragedy and betrayal, and the triumph of redemption and forgiveness.
