When Army Bombardier Capt. Robert Marsden crashes his B-17 in France during World War II, he doubts he’ll survive.
The Nazis have already occupied the country, but good fortune smiles on him: Lisa Jardin, an attractive nursing student, brings him back to health. At first, he wonders if she’s real or if she’s a figment of his imagination.
Not only is she real— the two fall in love. Marsden joins the French Resistance in the little village of St. Liseau, carrying out sabotage missions against German occupying forces and supplying critical information to allied Supreme Headquarters as it prepares to invade the beaches of Normandy.
But even his brushes with death cannot prepare him for the chain of events that are set into motion when German troops retreat deeper into the French countryside. Fighting for their very lives, the lives of the villagers will be forever changed at The Road at St. Liseau.
