The French Lieutenant and the King of Rome
A historical, romantic novel set in the German occupation of France during WWII.
The real historical personalities, such as Petain and the other high Officers mentioned, and cabinet members both British and French and, of course the King of Rome and the circumstances surrounding him, should be recognizable historically.
The novel is filled with mystery, violence, romance and constant surprise, though based upon actual historical events.
