From our 2015 #80DayRead Summer Reading Club traveler Mallee: Saffie takes a maid's job in Paris trying to overcome her war torn past in Germany when she meets a Hungarian equally damaged by the war.
A novel that resonates with passion and politics, The Mark of the Angel is set in the late fifties in Paris, against the violence of a France at war with Algeria. Saffie, a young German traumatized by her childhood war memories, sleepwalks into marriage with Raphael, a famous French flautist. She bears his child, but is finally awakened and transformed by her love for Andras, a Hungarian instrument maker. The denouement is both unsettling and unforgettable – the angel forgot to mark us!
