A true story of love, loss, and the mother-daughter relationship across generations, this biography describes Rebecca Huntley's search for her maternal grandmother's story. Following the death of her Italian Nonna, Huntley discovers that there was much unknown about the kind-hearted, quiet individual she thought she knew. With evocative stories and tender honesty, Huntley explores the young life of the woman who cooked masterfully and embroidered daily and those of the men and women in her family from Northern Queensland during World War II. In the process, old issues with her own mother are awakened and the concept of what it really means to be a mother is contemplated.

Immigrant girls are disappearing across fin de siècle Paris in a mystery that “shines a light on both the glamor and the grime of” the City of Light (Publishers Weekly). On a sultry night in June 1897, Pyotr Ivanovich Balenov, a young Russian, and two young women transport a dead man through the narrow streets of a working class neighborhood in northeastern Paris. They throw the body into the canal and the girls flee to the Latin Quarter to hide with one of the Russian’s anarchist “comrades.” They do not realize they, too, are being watched. Their subsequent disappearance and the violent acts that follow will set Clarie Martin, a teacher and mother of a toddler, and her husband, magistrate Bernard Martin (last seen in Cezanne’s Quarry and The Blood of Lorraine) on a dangerous quest to rescue them from a vicious killer.
