Following the German invasion of the Channel Islands in 1940, the Becquet family’s Guernsey home has been requisitioned for German officers. As widowed matriarch Jeanne navigates the dangerous game of the new commander’s attraction to her, her daughter-in-law Lily discovers a mysterious young man washed up on the shore. Wracked by fever, the man remembers nothing, including his own name; with equal probability he’s British or German. Lily and Jeanne’s young daughter Estelle convince her to shelter him until his memory returns. But harbouring this fallen angel threatens the modicum of safety and stability Jeanne has wrung from her family’s dispossession.
