It is 1938, late summer in the French countryside. An 18year old girl Annabelle is visiting her grand parents when she meets a handsome young British army officer and landscape painter Peter. On returning to England their relationship blossoms, and soon they are married. But things are not destined to be quite so simple. As the skies over Europe darken, Annabelle’s certainties about the world, and in particular the people closest to her, including her beloved Peter, come under increasing scrutiny.
So unfolds a gripping saga of love and betrayal, revelation and revenge, in which surprise is always waiting in the wings, appearances deceive, and suspicion and doubt become almost as feared an enemy as the Nazis themselves.
Set against the twin backdrops of an idyllic, pre-war rural England, and the dramatic, action packed underworld of German occupied France, Dark Persuasion takes its readers on a deliciously nerve-tingling tightrope walk of romance, a strong air of menace and an unusual and unexpected climax all of which elevates it from the traditional stories of wartime life and romance and transports the reader into a suspense filled and gripping tale.
