"Traitor's daughter! You're not wanted here!"
It was a harsh welcome for Charlotte, returning home to France after four years abroad. The Franco-Prussian war was over, but the villagers of Montsapin had not forgotten it. They had suffered at the hands of the Prussian army. Now they wanted revenge.
They accused Charlotte's father of sheltering a young German officer. They would not believe in his innocence. Charlotte couldn't believe in his guilt. Until she found the stranger hiding in the attic!
