What you need to know before your trail

French chef Sylvie was sent to Paris as part of the resistance, while German soldier Christoph is doing his duty to save his sister. As the two begin to discover the people beneath their uniforms, the rest of the world, and the war raging on, fades away. But Christoph can never know Sylvie’s identity, which might end up destroying him.

Sixty years later, Christoph’s health is declining, and his memories are fading. Having returned to Germany to help her mentor, Julia discovers a book filled with ‘the recipes of us’ and sets out to cook each dish in the hope of reviving Christoph.

As his memories resurface, Julia begins her own quest to find the woman he lost to the war. Can Julia discover the truth behind Sylvie and Christoph, or will it be too late?

Travel Guide


The city of Paris under occupation is the one in focus here. It is the star of the show in the past storyline with Bonn being more of a focus in the present day. Paris is the focus however.

From the Eiffel Tower under a bomb attack to the famous cafes and buildings that were renowned at  the time are all in the novel. This is the Paris under the Nazis and we see the fear, death and destruction.

Very well evoked and the romance storylines really adds a new thread of interest. Very emotional this book!
