The Widow of Honfleur

by Julian Grenfell

How did a young woman from a Normandy fishing port come to take centre-stage in a sensational criminal trial in Paris, a heroine to the political Left, a hate figure to the Right. Madeleine is on a quest to find and shame the superior officer whose act of cowardice, officially covered up, had caused the death of her flyer husband fighting rebels in Morocco. Through the turbulence of 1920s Paris, the dangers of Florence under Mussolini’s rule, and the dramas she faces in her home town, Madeleine proves herself to be a force of nature to be reckoned with.
