WHEN the Germans occupied France in 1940, the citizens of one small town watched in dismay – and did as little as possible to help the invaders. The mayor’s daughter, Marie Bonnet, was disliked by the town for appearing to be too friendly with the Germans. No one suspected that she was really a daring resister called the Cat. All through the war, she suffered under the townspeople’s hateful gaze while her alter ego was praised for acts of heroism in the same breath.
But now it is 1944 and Marie’s town has just been liberated. As in many other French towns, suspected German sympathisers are subject to mob vigilante justice. How will the Cat get out of this one? And, more importantly, how will Marie reclaim her reputation and finally, finally be able to reveal her true self, her bravery in the midst of all the jeers that had come her way, all the loneliness, the taunts?
