Paris, 1916. Sophie Lefevre must keep her family safe while her adored husband, Edouard, fights at the front. When their town falls to the Germans in the midst of World War I, Sophie is forced to serve them every evening at her hotel. From the moment the new Kommandant sets eyes on Sophie's portrait, painted by her artist husband, a dangerous obsession is born, one that will lead Sophie to make a dark and terrible decision. Almost a century later, Sophie's portrait hangs in the home of Liv Halston, a wedding gift from her young husband before his sudden death. After a chance encounter reveals the portrait's true worth, a battle begins over its troubled history and Liv's world is turned upside all over again.

There are 2 stories in this book woven together around a valuable painting. The 1st half is set in a French village occupied by Germans. The 2nd half is much closer to current time. The author did an excellent job of putting these 2 stories together. The modern day story was a little longer than necessary, but I still give the book 5 stars.
