American gunner Joe Cornwall's B-17 was shot down over Nazi-occupied France in the summer of 1943, killing most of his fellow crewmen. With D-Day still nearly a year away, Joe and the other surviving airmen made their way to Paris where they found shelter with the Morins, a family of resistance members living and working in the Hôtel des Invalides. Hidden in the labyrinth of passages beneath the complex while hatching a dangerous plan to escape capture and return home, Joe fell in love with the spirited Yvette Morin. A bracing true story of love and loss, superb in its details, Escape from Paris builds to a conclusion that is both romantic and gut-wrenching. (BH)
