Returning in 1941 to her beloved Paris from the safety of rural France, Colette, already crippled by arthritis, yet finds hope, and the prospect of liberation in the dark days of the Nazi Occupation. In this immensely touching volume of recollections, as in the later Evening Star (The Women's Press, 1987), she draws on vivid memories of a happy country childhood to counterpoint vignettes of the endurance, ingenuity and generosity of spirit she observes among the people of France, and their determination to survive war-time danger and privation.
