The Things We Did for Love
France: February, 1944.
Arianne knew Luc as a child, of course she did. Everyone in Samaroux knows each other. But he's been away, and five years really makes a difference to a boy. A young man.
As they fall headily into love their world starts to crumble around them. German forces are closing in, and the village is torn between cooperating to save themselves or putting up resistance and entering unknown danger.
Arianne will do anything to make Luc stay. Luc wants to prove he is a man. And Romy, who has loved Arianne all the time that Luc has been away, can see a way of removing his rival, at any cost.
How far will they go to protect what they believe in? And what will they do for love?
Natasha Farrant's YA debut is a devastating story of resistance, heartbreak and betrayal.
