About this title


Madeleine Devaux, a young English girl, accepts a job as a commercial courier making journeys between England and Europe. When World War II breaks out, she is in France. The train she is on is unexpectedly captured by the Germans and she is taken into custody. There is an explosion as the train arrives in Stuttgart. Madeleine is able to slip away, but as a stranger in enemy territory, who can she trust? It challenges her courage and her ingenuity. She goes into hiding, but finally has to make a dash to freedom before the Gestapo arrests her. She makes a daring escape. Later, she is recruited by British Intelligence. Her adventures continue after the war and take her throughout Europe, but she is still followed by a sinister assassin and other shadowy figures. Her quest is to be liberated from the fear and suspense of wartime memories. Her hope is that one day she may find the tranquility and love that eluded her during earlier experiences.

About the Author:

J.D. Smithyes was born and educated in England. Her professional career first took her to Basle, Switzerland where she worked for The Bank for International Settlements. Thereafter, she accepted a position in the private office of the Secretary General of The Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France. Her experience and knowledge of languages resulted in her being elected to the Institute of Linguists in London. She later worked for the Belgian diplomatic corps in New York. During this period, she met her husband-to-be. They were married in England and have two children. She and her husband reside in the United States, in Michigan. J.D. Smithyes's World War II experiences are part of a collective memoir created by a group of her peers at Sutton GDST. A disk of this material is on file at The Imperial War Museum in London.
