But as he grows up, he becomes no stranger to grief and loss.

World War II begins and Nicolas finds himself in deadly peril, hunted by the Nazis. His already complicated relationship with the girl he loves takes a new direction when France surrenders to Germany, and they fight a different kind of war as part of la Résistance.

Hidden in the fastness of their mountain stronghold, every day is a battle of wits, courage and endurance as they fight to survive and undermine the overwhelming might of the Nazi war machine. And it appears the Nazi's have the upper hand until salvation comes from an unexpected source ...

Fans of The Nightingale and The Lost Wife will enjoy this riveting historical romance saga.

About the author

Anne Rouen is an award-winning historical fiction author from Australia, who is inspired by the opulent operatic age of 19th century France, the classic Belle Époque era and the dark times of the world wars. This passion was ignited from her own heritage, combined with a lifelong love of historical fiction writing, particularly those of a similar ilk to Georgette Heyer. 

This is where inspiration for the Master of Illusion series was born. 

Anne Rouen is the alter ego of Lynn Newberry: a country woman from the New South Wales New England region, who breeds Brangus cattle by day and is a dedicated, passionate horsewoman. The lady behind Anne Rouen has completed a specialist teaching degree in the Rural Sciences department of the University of New England, and has spent most of her years involved in the agricultural industry—twenty of them as an educator. 

Throughout her career, Lynn has escaped the everyday demands of work through the hand of Anne Rouen. Master of Illusion—Book One was her first published novel, and it, along with its sequels, Master of Illusion—Book Two and Angel of Song have been nominated in several award programs, most notably, the Global Ebook Awards where Anne won the Silver Medal for Modern Historical Literature Fiction in 2014 and the Bronze Medal for Modern Historical Literature Fiction in 2016.

Lynn has also seen success with her short story writing, achieving a Highly Commended in the Rolf Boldrewood Literary Awards (2011) for The Scent of a Criminal

With a broad range of interests, Anne Rouen writes a regular blog where she chats about her firsthand experience beating breast cancer, her love of horses and other current issues close to her heart.
