What should you do if the world has turned against you? When Father
Anselm is asked this question by an old man at Larkwood Priory, his
response, to claim sanctuary, is to have greater resonance than he
could ever have imagined. For that evening the old man returns,
demanding the protection of the church. His name is Eduard
Schwermann and he is wanted by the police as a suspected war
criminal.With her life running out, Agnes Aubret feels it is time
to unburden to her granddaughter Lucy the secrets she has been
carrying for so long. Fifty years earlier, Agnes had been living in
Occupied Paris, a member of a small group risking their lives to
smuggle Jewish children to safety - until they were exposed by a
young SS Officer: Eduard Schwermann.As Anselm attempts to uncover
Schwermann's past, and as Lucy's search into her grandmother's
history continues, their investigations dovetail to reveal a
remarkable story.'Brodrick keeps the story going at a cracking
pace, flitting back and forth between its various elements,
characters and eras with timing so expert the reader is compelled
to keep turning the pages' Time Out
