What was life like for the French living in the Pyrenees, a route to freedom for refugees during WWII? A British journalist who settled in the area sought answers about the real role of the Resistance, the level of collaboration, the local concentration camps, and the treatment of Jews and other refugees. While much remains hidden, a portrait of human heroism and cruelty comes to light.

Review:

Part travel book, part history, part persnoal memoir, this is a gripping read. * NORTHERN ECHO * Combining memoir, fact and storytelling, Bailey does an impressive job. * INDEPENDENT * Bailey renders history personal and so brings it to life. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * Fascinating... courage, cruelty, heroism and the truth about both resistance and collaboration are revealed in a work that brilliantly reconstructs a past that is still contested. * WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY *
