Adult Fiction FAULKS
Summary: Charlotte Gray is set in England and France during the darkest days of World War II, and its story is that of a young Scottish woman who falls in love with an RAF pilot shortly before his plane is lost over France. She contrives to go there herself to work in the Resistance and also to search for him, but then is unwilling to leave as she finds that the struggle for the country's fate is intimately linked to her own battle to take control of her life. An ambitious novel that operates on a number of levels, Charlotte Gray is also an authentic, brilliant evocation of life in London during the black-outs and in unoccupied "Free" France, as the Nazi forces encroach ever closer in a tense waiting game. This new novel will heighten the reputation Sebastian Faulks established with Birdsong, and attract even more readers to his remarkable fiction.
