The Boy with the Star Tattoo

In 1942 the Vichy government is hunting for Jews, invalids and partisans throughout France. Claudette is a talented young seamstress living and working at the estate of a kind Duchess. One day as the Nazis get closer to the chateau a Jewish father and son are begging at the back entrance. Freezing and malnourished Claudette does whatever she can to help. She feels an immediate connection to the son and falls deeply in love knowing they can only stay a few days without being discovered. It is not long before she realizes she is pregnant and may never see Rafael again. When the town is finally invaded Claudette is forced to make a decision that will change her life forever.  Sharon is grieving in Israel. Her fiancĂ© is presumed dead as the submarine he manned in the Israeli navy has disappeared. It is 1968 and at 20 years old, Sharon is too young to spend her days as a grieving widow. With her many language skills Sharon is offered an opportunity to be part of an operation in France. Raised by her grandparents, she is encouraged to accept and leave Israel for the first time. In France she works beside Daniel Yardin, a handsome naval officer who trusts Sharon with top secret missions. Learning to rely on her instincts Sharon excels at her job while also discovering clues to a past that was buried long ago. Narrated between two very different times, it is only twenty years after the Holocaust that these once tortured victims have become resilient and resourceful Israelis that will do anything to protect the future of their people. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
