The Two Hotel Francforts
A NovelBook - 2013
A taut and charged historical novel about two couples caught up in a world at war, from the acclaimed author of "The Indian Clerk." It is the summer of 1940, and Lisbon, Portugal, is the only neutral port left in Europe. As Portugal's neutrality, and the world's future, hang in the balance, the hidden threads in the lives of these four characters - Julia's status as a Jew, Pete and Edward's improbable affair, Iris' increasingly desperate efforts to save her tenuous marriage - begin to come loose. This journey will change their lives irrevocably as Europe sinks into war.
