The French Gift by Kirsty Manning

A World War II story of female friendship, longing and sacrifice through war and loss, bringing together the present and the past. 

A forgotten manuscript threatens to unravel the past…

Fresnes Prison, 1940: Margot Bisset, a maid from the Riviera, finds herself in a prison cell with writer and Resistance fighter, Josephine Murant. Together, they are transferred to a work camp, where the secrets they share will bind them for generations to come.

Present-day Paris: Evie Black lives above her botanical bookshop with her teenage son, Hugo. Nursing a broken heart, Evie receives an unexpected letter; she clutches at an opportunity to spend a magical summer with Hugo on the Cote d'Azur. It's here, on the Riviera, that the past envelops them and Evie attempts to unravel the official story of a famous novelist. If she succeeds, a murder from a lifetime ago may be solved.

Inspired by a true story of iconic French Resistance fighter, Agnes Humbert, whose secret journal shed light on a little-known aspect of World War II, The French Gift will captivate readers from beginning to unforgettable end.
