Luc Bonet, brought up by a wealthy Jewish family in the foothills of the French Alps, finds his life shattered by the brutality of Nazi soldiers. Leaving his abandoned lavender fields behind, Luc joins the French Resistance in a quest for revenge.
Lisette Forestier is on a mission: to work her way into the heart of a senior German officer, and to infiltrate the very masterminds of the Gestapo. But can she balance the line between love and lies?
The one thing Luc and Lisette hadn’t counted on was meeting each other. Who, if anyone, can be trusted – and will their own emotions become the greatest betrayers of all?
What The Critics Said
'A brilliant, seductive read. If The Lavender Keeper doesn't make you cry, you have no heart.'
Dinah Jefferies, author of The Separation
'An enthralling evocative read it most definitely is...The French Resistance, the SOE, a tough wartime mission and romance: a popular subject and yet some authors can make it feel fresh and exciting. Fiona McIntosh is one such author so enjoy!...It's pretty darned excellent.'
'Conjures up the perfect imagery of occupied rural France during the second world war - Fiona's prose is lyrical and haunting, and the atmosphere is beautifully conveyed - the tension, too, is perfectly described. A great summer read.'
