The Milliner's Secret
By Natalie Meg Evans
Published by Quercus Books
Paris 1940. Londoner Cora Masson has reinvented herself as Coralie de Lirac, using a false claim to aristocratic birth to launch herself as a fashionable milliner. When the Nazis invade, the influence of a high-ranking lover protects her business. But the cruel demands of war - and of love - cannot be kept at bay forever. Coralie must find the courage to protect everything she believes in.
