It charmed German readers, never leaving the Der Spiegel bestseller list since publication a year ago, selling nearly two hundred thousand copies.Summer 1918.

Through occupied Paris during the Second World War, where Léon struggles against the abhorrent tasks imposed on him by the SS, and the wilds of Africa, where Louise confronts the hardships of her primitive environment, they battle the vicissitudes of history and the passage of time for the survival of their love.Léon and Louise's is an enduring passion, an enchanting tale of love's triumph against improbable odds, and a story masterfully told. Alex Capus' poetic, understated language is beautifully translated by John Brownjohn.Alex Capus is the author of Sailing by Starlight.
