1942, Nazi-occupied France. Sandrine, a spirited and courageous nineteen-year-old, finds herself drawn into a Resistance group in Carcassonne - codenamed 'Citadel' - made up of ordinary women who are prepared to risk everything for what is right.
I enjoy all of this author's writing, but this may be my favorite. It's set in World War II. I was thrilled with the idea of a group of women engaged in the resistance. I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptions about life in a small town in France during this period of time. Part of the book takes place in a hillside village that is wonderfully depicted. There is romance between Sandrine and Raoul. There is a wonderful story about a monk in 325 AD who goes on a quest to protect a sacred codex text. It brings him to the hillside village where Sandrine's family spends each summer and where her equipe de resistance has their final encounter with the Nazis in 1944. There is mystery surrounding the location and potency of the words in the codex and their ability to influence the outcome of the war. There are acts of resilience, the ability to stand up and continue fighting, despite the feelings of despair and hopelessness that swirl around them and pierce their resolve. There are stories about neighbors turning on neighbors and the messy and unpredictable way in which people respond to hardship. he book is yet another story about the whole history of Carcassonne and the Languedoc region of France, and it connects some of the story and characters in the book Labyrinth.

This book hooked me completely. I was reading it at bedtime and it was frequently a challenge to put it down to go to sleep. There are some connections to the previous books in Mosse's Languedoc series, but the main story follows Sandrine in Carcassone in 1942 and 1944, first how she gets involved in the resistance and then the end of the two years of success in that task. Alongside, a 4th century man hides a religious text deemed heretical so it wouldn't be lost entirely, and which becomes important in the other strand of the story too. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. ( )

I have read all of Mosse's works of fiction now, and have loved all of them. This third in the Languedoc trilogy, and it hasn't disappointed. Whilst there is the hint of the supernatural about the story, it is only an aside - a driver for the Authie subplot. The characters are, as always, well rounded and you see them grow as people as the story develops. You don't have to read the trilogy in order as they are stand alone books, but reading them helps understand the mentions of Baillard and Anais in the text. ( )

I really liked some of the characters, and the historical detail. The mystical/fantasy part of it didn't always ring true (was a bit too facile) but otherwise it's a gripping read. ( )
