The guardian of lies

Furnivall, Kate2019
1953, the South of France. The fragile peace between the West and Soviet Russia hangs on a knife edge. And one family has been torn apart by secrets and conflicting allegiances. Eloïse Caussade is a courageous young Frenchwoman, raised on a bull farm near Arles in the Camargue. She idolises her older brother, André, and when he leaves to become an Intelligence Officer working for the CIA in Paris to help protect France, she soon follows him. Having exchanged the strict confines of her father's farm for a life of freedom in Paris, her world comes alive. But everything changes when André is injured - a direct result of Eloïse's actions. Unable to work, André returns to his father's farm, but Eloïse's sense of guilt and responsibility for his injuries sets her on the trail of the person who attempted to kill him. She finds her hometown in a state of unrest and conflict.
