But then war breaks out and the city of light falls into shadow and the little family must somehow survive life under Nazi occupation.

Nearly twenty-five years later, Fay Knox, a talented young violinist, who was born the day World War II started and whose Father was killed during anAir-Raid which destroyed their London house, and now lives in a quiet Norfolk Village with her mother Kitty, visits Paris on tour with her Orchestra.

During the visit A strange series of events stirs up buried memories which cause Fay to question what really happened during the war and she begins to suspect that she may have spent part of the war in Paris.
