From the Publisher:

Graduating from Jenkinsville High School marks a new beginning for Patty Bergen. It's been a long time since she's been called a "Jew Nazi lover," but before she can face her future, she must come to terms with her past. For although Anton, the escaped German POW whom Patty sheltered when she was a twelve-year-old girl, has been dead for six years, her feelings for him will not die.

Driven by a need to find the love her parents denied her, Patty decides to go to Germany in search of Anton's mother, desperate for a connection to the man she loved and lost. En route to her destination, she stops in Paris, where she meets Roger. The encounter makes Patty think twice about her plan--not only because of what she might find, but because of what she must leave behind....
