A tale of impossible love in Nazi-occupied Belgium, where forbidden passions have catastrophic consequences. Claire Daussois, the wife of a Belgian resistance worker, shelters a wounded American bomber pilot in a secret attic hideaway. As she nurses him back to health, Claire is drawn into an affair that seems strong enough to conquer all–until the brutal realities of war intrude, shattering every idea she ever had about love, trust, and betrayal. Resistance is a tender but tragic love story, told with the same narrative grace and keen eye for human emotion that have distinguished all of Anita Shreve's cherished bestsellers.
