The Girl at the Lion dOr by Sebastian Faulks

Beautifully written and--extraordinarily moving.--The Sunday Times(London) From the author of the international bestsellerBirdsong, comes a haunting historical novel of passion, loss, and courage set in France between the two world wars. This Vintage Original edition marks its first appearance in the United States. On a rainy night in the 1930s, Anne Louvet appears at the run-down Hotel du Lion dOr in the village of Janvilliers.She is seeking a job and a new life, one far removed from the awful injustices of her past. As Anne embarks on a torrential love affair with a married veteran of the Great War,The Girl at the Lion dOrfashions an unbreakable spell of narrative and atmosphere that evokes French masters from Flaubert to Renoir. This moving and profound novel is perfectly constructed, and admirable in its configurations of place and period.--The Times(London) I would urge those who appreciated--The French Lieutenants Womanto try this one--. They may well think it superior.--Sunday Telegraph(London
