In 1946 in North America, a child makes a grisly find in a deserted field -- a discovery that opens a shuttered window on a secret dating back to the beginning of the turbulent decade. In 1941 in occupied France, Adele Georges's fruitless attempts to learn the whereabouts of her father, captured by the Nazis, lead her to a lonely young German soldier far from home. A spark between them becomes a fire -- and a dangerous love affair blooms across enemy lines, dooming Adele to a grim postwar existence as a despised outcast, one of the infamous "horizontal collaborators." Ostracized, tortured, tormented, she chooses a desperate escape, accompanying a war-damaged yet optimistic Allied soldier across an ocean to a new land. But there is no refuge from the past, as Adele's broken heart and shameful secret drive her deeper into despair ... and toward a shocking outcome

A terrified three-year-old boy is found clinging to a wire fence at the side of a country road. The only clue found by authorities as to the child's identity is a photograph of two summering teenage girls and a letter presumably written from one to the other. Sixteen years later, Walker Devereaux is in Toronto to discover the truth about his biological mother, of whom he has a dim memory. Working as an after-hours cabdriver, Walker befriends Krista, a demanding, pretty, wheelchair-bound night dispatcher. Krista and Walker become fast friends, and she can't help but involve herself with Walker's quest to understand his shrouded identity. Soon enough, though, their off-hours sleuthing turns perilous. Walker and Krista's wooded countryside veers this duo ever closer to that of another abandoned boy who has transformed himself into the embodiment of his own desperate, violent, and sinister pathologies
