ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Émilie de la Martinières ha sempre subito il giudizio di sua madre, regina indiscussa della scena mondana parigina. Ora ha trent'anni, ma la freddezza mascherata dal lusso e dagli agi con cui quella donna superficiale e distante l'ha cresciuta è un fardello ancora pesante da portare. L'improvvisa notizia della sua morte, tuttavia, risveglia in Emilie un groviglio di sentimenti contrastanti e dolorosi, soprattutto quando apprende di essere l'unica erede di un sontuoso castello nel Sud della Francia, un castello che nasconde le risposte a molti degli interrogativi che pendono sul suo passato: sarà un vecchio taccuino ritrovato tra quelle mura a metterla sulle tracce della misteriosa e bellissima zia Sophia, la cui tragica storia d'amore ai tempi della guerra ha segnato irrimediabilmente la sua famiglia. E perché all'improvviso continua a pensare a un uomo che ha appena conosciuto, proprio lei che si è sempre tenuta lontana dall'amore?

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Lucinda Riley's The Light Behind the Window is a breathtaking and intense story of love, war and, above all, forgiveness.The present: Emilie de la Martiniéres has always fought against her aristocratic background, but after the death of her glamorous, distant mother, she finds herself alone in the world and sole inheritor of her grand childhood home in the south of France. An old notebook of poems leads her in search of the mysterious and beautiful Sophia, whose tragic love affair changed the course of her family history. As Emilie unravels the story, she too embarks on her own journey of discovery, realizing that the château may provide clues to her own difficult past and finally unlock the future. The past: London 1943. A young office clerk, Constance Carruthers, is drafted into the SOE, arriving in occupied Paris during the climax of the conflict. Separated from her contact in her very first hours in France, she stumbles into the heart of a wealthy family who are caught up in a deadly game of secrets and lies. Forced to surrender her identity and all ties to her homeland and her beloved husband, Constance finds herself drawn into a complex web of deception, the repercussions of which will affect generations to come.
