              It's July 1943 and the world has been at war for almost four long years. One morning, young widow Emmy Penry-Jones discovers two men washed up on the beach below her house on the west coast of Cornwall. Emmy is used to rescuing washed-up sailors, the deadly Battle of the Atlantic... exacting a heavy toll on shipping. But these men are not like the shipwrecked sailors she has rescued before and Emmy is soon drawn into a web of intrigue that will test both her ingenuity and her patriotism. Rocked by accusations of war crimes against a man she knows to be innocent, Emmy launches a bid to defend him, all too aware that the accusers could turn on her. The trial marks a turning point and Emmy is drawn further into a deadly cycle of post-war retribution from which only one man can save her.

              Leni is an illegitimate child born in pre-World War II Germany in a small town steeped in superstition. Spurned by her Catholic grandfather and living in poverty, Leni joins the Hitler Youth before leaving school at fourteen to support her mother and younger brothers. With no-one... to protect her, a sadistic employer forces her to submit to secret systematic rape or face having her mother interned. Leni quickly learns to stay silent and keep her secret. As the war grinds to an agonising climax, Leni's family flees the advance of the Red Army. Surviving on her wits, she is transformed from a meek, cowed girl to protector of her family. In the post-war chaos she falls pregnant to her boyfriend and the little family finally escapes the devastated continent with migration to Australia under the International Refugee Organisation program. Now isolated in an alien land, they endure the hardships of the Bonegilla Migrant Hostel and face the enormous task of beginning a new life. But Leni's secrets remain and a stunning deathbed revelation sends her daughter, Annette, on a complex search that crosses three continents in a bid to unravel the web of intrigue that protects her mother's ultimate secret. War Child reveals one woman's enormous courage and desperation to protect those she loved most ... right until the final, extraordinary moment of her life.

              Love, lies and deceit in occupied Paris: a young nurse finds herself caught between the resistance and the Gestapo. Marisa Carnarvon is an enigma to her family. In 1938 she turns her back on her privileged Sydney lifestyle to become a nurse in a London hospital. With conflict loo...ming, she moves to a Red Cross hospital in Paris, totally unprepared for the forces the approaching maelstrom will unleash. In June 1940 the Germans invade Paris and the young nurse is soon pressured by the leader of the local resistance cell to work for the fledgling movement. Marisa's life becomes increasingly precarious with the arrival of a new Gestapo chief who sets out to seduce her, and the hunt for a traitor in the organisation that throws her into the resistance firing line. As war approaches its climax, Marisa's Gestapo lover flees and the young nurse follows. Only now does Marisa finally discover the truth behind the man whose life was a masterpiece of deception.

Everyone is being watched, and some of Le Prix's colourful performers are hiding dangerous secrets. Monsieur Maurice manages Le Prix d'Amour, a successful Parisian cabaret, which boasts glitzy... performers and sassy showgirls.

It follows the antics of Maurice, Lily and a glittering array of characters, but never loses sight of the battle to survive that characterised the life of the everyday Parisian.
