A haunting historical novel set in France between the two world wars about love and desire from the author of the international bestseller, Birdsong.

Mid-1930s, Northern France.

A mysterious young girl named Anne Louvet arrives at the seedy Hotel du Lion d'Or in the small French town of Janvilliers. She is seeking a job and a new life, far removed from the injustices of her past.

At the hotel, Anne meets the cultured, rich and married Hartmann and begins an affair with the married Great War veteran, revealing her secrets, fears and hopes to him with life-shattering consequences.

From award-winning author Sebastian Faulks, Girl at The Lion d'Or is a powerful story of love and conscience, will and desire.

`Beautifully written and extraordinarily moving' - The Sunday Times

Also available by Sebastian Faulks as part of the French trilogy series: Birdsong and Charlotte Gray.
