Description

The Confluence is the story of Kate Bradley who is haunted by the loss of her father in a wild British Columbia river and takes up residence in a remote part of France; of Alain Auberjean, a concert violinist who believes his father was a Resistance hero executed by the Nazis; and of the elderly and mysterious Madeleine Serault who fought with the Maquis during World War Two and now tries to protect a troubling secret in a small French village.In this compelling novel J.A. Wainwright explores the intersection of these three lives against a war-time background of violent betrayal and death. With the appearance of a Maquis traitor, the action moves towards a powerful climax and possible deliverance for those bound by their efforts to confront the past.
