Flame in the Night
A Novel of WWII FranceBook - 2018
"Julien Losier has just turned eighteen. But there's not much to celebrate. This is Vichy France in 1942, and his coming of age is marred by the Nazi occupation of his homeland. His father has always taught him that evil is best resisted by the power of God, not by the gun. But when the roundups of Jews begin, targeting both his best friend, Benjamin Keller, and Elisa Schulmann, the girl who has captured his heart, Julien starts to question where real power lies. Can he protect the people he loves if he follows his father's ways of peace? How can the meek inherit the earth when the strong hold all the cards? Evicted from her home and separated from her parents, Elisa has no good choices. She must decide for herself and her two young siblings between the daily Nazi threat in France or the dangers of fleeing to Switzerland. Can Julien help her make this life-and-death choice?"--Back cover.
