Architect Marshall Becker travels to Lamorlaye, France, to restore a Renaissance-era castle. He learns that Nazis took over the castle during WWII and subjected pregnant women to atrocities, and he hears the story of two young women who worked at the chateau and witnessed the events. Soon, Marshall becomes aware that the house is not the only thing harboring secrets. Everyone in the family, even Jade, the fiery nanny, may have something to hide. ­
VERDICT Phoenix expertly weaves the present and the past in this heart-wrenching story, which was originally self published. Recommend it to readers who enjoy Bodie Thoene.
