The Innocents Within: A Novel

The pastor and his wife took her in as a child. Now eighteen, she has grown into a beauty."--BOOK JACKET. "Into this mix, badly wounded, crashes an American fighter pilot who is scarcely older. He is brought to the rectory."--BOOK JACKET. "Centered on a real village and real people who defied the Nazis, The Innocents Within is about courage and love, religion and danger. Most of all it is a study of innocence against a background of the most monstrous evil ever known."--BOOK JACKET.
